Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen is close to a £15million move to Barcelona, Press Association Sport understands.

The Belgium defender could complete a move to the Nou Camp over the weekend.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger on Thursday suggested the club's preference was to sell the defender abroad, rather than to a domestic rival, with Manchester United rumoured to also be interested.
