Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen is reportedly weighing up a move away from the Gunners in January to increase his chances of playing for Belgium at the 2014 Brazil World Cup.

Vermaelen, 27, has played only ten minutes in a Premier League game this season since returning from a back problem and appears to have slipped down the pecking order for his country, who will return to the World Cup finals since 2002 in the South American nation.

Coach Marc Wilmorts will start Varmaelen in Tuesday’s qualifying clash against Wales, which could be more of a formality match for his side having secured their ticket.

However, beating the likes of Vincent Kompany, Jan Vertonghen and Daniel van Buyten to the starting line-up of the ‘Rode Duivels’ appears to concern the Arsenal captain.

“Yes, I’ll have to think about that when it’s necessary,” Vamaelen is quoted by British newspaper Daily Mail about his future in London. “January is still a few months ahead. Of course never playing will not be the ideal situation for me to go the World Cup, that’s for sure.”

“People ask me if I panic because I’m not playing a lot but I’m not.

“I have spoken to the manager but it will remain private between us. Things can happen in a split second and change my situation. Tha can happen tomorrow or next weekend.

“In any case, we will speak differently in January. I have to be ready for that.”
