Ten Hag could land the next Kimmich with Man United summer move for £20m sensation

Sure, here is a rewritten version of the text:

As the season comes to an end, Manchester United will soon turn their attention to potential new signings ahead of the summer transfer window. The club is likely to need new faces amid rumors of a potential mass departure from Old Trafford.

According to The Guardian, as many as 15 players could be at risk as manager Erik ten Hag continues to restructure the team. The Dutchman is likely to be aiming to turn his team into a legitimate title contender next season.

In terms of new signings, the Manchester Evening News reports that a “younger” midfielder could be on the cards to join the experienced pair of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen. This would seem to be a key area that the former Ajax manager is eager to address.

In the search for a younger addition, rumors in Spain have suggested that United have already spoken to Arthur Vermeeren, who is also wanted by Barcelona. The Royal Antwerp teenager is reportedly only worth £20 million, according to the Daily Mail.

So who is Arthur Vermeeren?

The 18-year-old “sensation,” as talent scout Jacek Kulig dubbed him, is a Belgian youth international who has made 32 senior appearances for the Pro League team. He has been described as a “sensation” and is starting to attract interest from Europe’s top clubs after having a breakout season at home.

The deep-lying ace has also drawn comparisons to Joshua Kimmich of Bayern Munich, who is regarded as “one of the most talented teenagers in Belgium.” Ten Hag could be on the verge of finding his own version of the German star.

The similarity between the two is evident in their ability to win the ball. Kimmich has averaged 2.4 tackles and 1.2 interceptions from his 33 Bundesliga appearances, while Vermeeren has averaged 2.7 tackles and 1.3 interceptions per game from his 24 league games this season.

In addition, while Kulig claims that the Belgian’s “football IQ” is “very strong,” Kimmich has also received praise from Roma manager Jose Mourinho for being exceptionally “intelligent” and “phenomenal.”

Despite recent links between United and the Bayern star, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims that the experienced playmaker is “untouchable” by the Bavarian giants (as reported by 90min).

With Kimmich’s departure from the Allianz Arena expected to be particularly difficult, Ten Hag may have found the £326k per week player’s heir apparent in Vermeeren.
