Vermeeren is a 18-year-old who can play both as a central and as a defensive midfielder. He is considered one of the biggest talents in his position.
The wonderkid is already an undisputed starter for his side, and his move to a bigger club seems a matter of time. Vermeeren is praised for his understanding of positional play, as well as for his technical attributes.
Barca had been following Vermeeren long before they got Antwerp in their Champions League group. The club could decide to go for the teenager next year, according to multiple sources.
