Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterAugust 4, 2014

Transfer rumours are taking over the back pages, as the rumblings are getting hotter as the window's closing gets nearer and nearer. 

Thomas Vermaelen's future at Arsenal is still unsettled. The captain is looking for on-pitch time away from the Emirates, and Swansea star Wilfried Bony could leave the Welsh side. 

Here's a look at the best back pages have to offer. 

The Sun leads with Vermaelen. Once a fan favourite who captained Arsenal, he has allegedly refused a new Gunners deal, with Manchester United Barcelona interested in swooping on the Belgian.
