Manchester United have been put on alert after Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admitted Thomas Vermaelen could leave.
The Belgian defender has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford all summer and is set for crunch talks with Wenger to sort out his future.
Now Wenger insisted no deal was done but there was a good chance that Vermaelen could leave The Emirates.
As quoted on the Daily Star, he said: “At the moment Thomas Vermaelen is here, he is injured at the moment with a short-term injury but it could happen.
“Yes, it is a possibility that he goes.
“If he goes we have to replace him because he is an important player in our squad.”
