Former Arsenal defender targeting shock Premier League return with Liverpool


Barcelona defender Thomas Vermaelen says he is not thinking of leaving the club, not "at the moment" at least.

The Belgium international has struggled to secure a regular place in the Liga since joining the club from Arsenal in the summer of 2014.

Liverpool are reported to be ready to make a move for the 30-year-old who will consider his future after this summer's Euro 2016 Championship.

"It's not that I want to leave Barcelona but the last few weeks and months have been a bit disappointing because I haven't been getting a lot of playing time," Vermaelen told Sky Sports News HQ.

"It's not that I'm thinking about leaving at the moment. I'm just focused on my national team.

"[Arsenal?] The last couple of weeks and months were a bit disappointing for them but before that they had a great season.

"I thought they had a big chance to win it this year and hopefully next year they can go on and win it."
