The Belgian has been a key figure in the Gunners' rise to third place in the Premier League after a difficult start to the season.
While the recent past has seen some of the club's top stars leave for new ventures, Vermaelen has no plans to move on from Arsenal, where he is feeling right at home.
"I have no intention of leaving this club. We are going for the Champions League again and this team can grow further," he told the Sunday Mirror.
"I feel at home in London and I feel that I have become a real Gunner. Arsenal is my club. In my eyes, they belong to the absolute elite of European top clubs.
"When I was young, I dreamed of playing for Ajax and Arsenal. Both dreams have come true."
The 26-year-old has made 37 appearances for the Gunners this campaign, scoring six times.
