Arse Talks brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Werder Bremen have showed their interest in re-signing Arsenal’s and German international Per Mertesacker, with his future at the Emirates now under-trained.
The German defender left the Bundesliga side over five years ago to team up with French’s Laurent Koscielny at the heart of our defence, but since he made his move things have been tough.
As well as the BFG still at the Emirates, recent seasons have suggested that he no longer have the ability to cut in some of the club’s toughest tests which was also part of the reason we signed Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia earlier this summer.
His compatriot has cemented his place in the Gunners back-four whilst pushing Gabriel out of the team in the process as well.
The rest coupled with the likes of Rob Holding and Calum Chambers as our back-up in the central-role, the chances of him getting back into action are minimal.
Step in Werder Bremen, who’s sporting director Frank Baumann has confirmed to newspaper Bild interest in capturing the services of the experienced German.
In the course of Serge (Gnabry’s) transfer, we also talked about his (Mertesacker’s) future.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see Mertesacker walk out of the club at the end of this season, he’s given everything to it and for that we can only applaud him.
Sadly, we may have already seen the last of him on a football pitch, with so many options ahead of him and a long-term injury keeping him out of action until February.
Mertesacker has already entered the final year of his contract and will become a free agent when the season finishes if he isn’t offered something soon.
