FC Barcelona have their sights set on young Belgian midfielder Arthur Vermeeren, and his current club Antwerp have valued the talented midfielder at just under €20 million, according to current information.
Vermeeren’s performance in Antwerp, who he will face in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League and which will serve to see first-hand his performance at the highest European level, has caught the attention of Barcelona, who see in him a possible reinforcement for the midfielder, a position currently only held by the specialist Oriol Romeu.
FC Barcelona already knows the selling price of Arthur Vermeeren
According to reports from Het Nieuwsblad, Antwerp, aware of the interest Vermeeren is attracting from Barcelona and other prestigious clubs such as Borussia Dortmund, have valued the young talent at around €20 million. According to Mundo Deportivo, this amount will be considered affordable for Barcelona should they decide to proceed with the signing.
Vermeeren’s rapid rise to the Antwerp first team last season was impressive. In a short time he made 43 competitive appearances, scoring one goal and four assists. Despite his youth, he also had the opportunity to make his debut for the Belgian U21 national team.
Barcelona are carefully considering the possibility of adding this young talent to their ranks and his performance in the Champions League clash could have a significant impact on future decision-making. The €20 million investment could be a long-term bet on a player who promises a great future in the world of football.
