Tottenham send scouts to watch Antwerp midfielder Arthur Vermeeren

Tottenham have intensified their focus on emerging talents as the club sent scouts to observe promising Antwerp midfielder, Arthur Vermeeren, during the Champions League clash against Barcelona. The 18-year-old Belgian midfielder showcased his skills in a historic victory for Antwerp, as they triumphed 3-2, with Vermeeren opening the scoring.

Vermeeren’s standout performance against a footballing giant like Barcelona has certainly not gone unnoticed, attracting attention from Premier League rivals Arsenal and Tottenham. Both North London clubs had scouts present at the match, carefully evaluating the young midfielder’s contribution on the grand stage.

The intense interest from two prominent English clubs underscores the growing reputation and potential of Arthur Vermeeren.

The teenager’s goal-scoring feat against Barcelona has also added to his already impressive resume, where he sees himself capped twice by the Belgian national team. Vermeeren’s playing style has drawn comparisons to legendary midfield maestros Xavi and Andres Iniesta, signifying the level of talent he possesses at such a young age.

Midfield addition to Spurs?

The competition for Vermeeren’s signature is expected to be fierce, with not only Premier League clubs but also European powerhouses like Manchester City, Juventus, and Bayern Munich reportedly expressing interest in the talented midfielder. His ability to influence matches, coupled with his international experience, makes Vermeeren an attractive prospect for clubs seeking to bolster their midfield ranks.

That’s according to 90min via Express. As the January transfer window approaches, the question surely lingers whether or not Arsenal and Tottenham will formalise their interest in Vermeeren with official bids.
