Arsenal looking for player-plus cash deal as shock target wanted

Arsenal are reportedly demanding a player swap over a cash agreement for Thomas Vermaelen.

Manchester United have been in negotiations with the Gunners over Vermaelen for the last few weeks and reports in Belgium had previously suggested that an agreement was close.

However, the Metro says the transfer is in danger of collapsing, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger keen to bring in Chris Smalling-plus-cash.

Wenger is a known fan of the versatile Englishman, and although he has shown no desire to leave the Red Devils, incoming boss Louis Van Gaal really wants Vermaelen and may feel letting Smalling go could be worth it.
