3. Thomas Vermaelen | Arsenal

Thomas Vermaelen may well be Arsenal's captain, but the Belgium international has only appeared in three Premier League matches for the Gunners this season.

Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker are Arsene Wenger's two preferred central defenders, meaning Vermaelen will spend much of this season watching on from the bench.

A move away from the Emirates Stadium will ensure that he features at next summer's World Cup finals in Brazil.
