It has been reported that Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen suffered a knee injury just 31 minutes into Belgium’s 1-0 win over Russia.
The 28 year old, a transfer target for Manchester United, played just over half an hour of Belgium’s victory, before being replaced by Jan Vertonghen.
Vermaelen had taken Vertonghen’s spot in the starting line-up for the clash with Fabio Capello’s side, but after appearing to struggle with an injury in the warm-up failed to make it through the first half.
According to the Daily Mail, future United boss Louis van Gaal hopes to sign the central-defender in a deal that could be worth in the region of £12million.
However – depending on the severity – his latest injury could put the move in jeopardy.
