Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, is reportedly determined to secure the services of Royal Antwerp midfielder Arthur Vermeeren in the upcoming January transfer window, as per recent reports.
Arthur Vermeeren, a young talent at the age of 18, boasts a commendable record of 26 appearances for Royal Antwerp, with one goal to his name.
Transfermarkt.com currently evaluates Vermeeren’s market worth at an impressive 17 million euros, a testament to his burgeoning potential in the world of football.
The Red Devils have endured a tumultuous start to the new season, a dismal performance underscored by a resounding 3-1 defeat at home to Brighton. This loss, to be candid, could have been even more humiliating.

One player who has notably struggled to replicate his previous form this season is Casemiro, the £70 million acquisition from Real Madrid. His performances have left much to be desired, leaving Manchester United searching for a solution to address the midfield issues and consider a long-term successor, despite the signing of Sofyan Amrabat in the waning moments of the summer transfer window.
According to Sport, Erik ten Hag has expressed a strong interest in Arthur Vermeeren and is actively urging the Manchester United hierarchy to expedite his signing in the January transfer window. He is apprehensive that delaying the deal until next summer could prove costly, particularly with the looming presence of Barcelona on the horizon.
As the transfer saga unfolds, the football world will be closely monitoring whether Manchester United can secure the talented midfielder’s services in January, as the club seeks to bolster its midfield ranks and address the issues plaguing its season start.
