Arsenal need to sign a new centre-back this summer. we have been shipping in goals this summer and we let in two more yesterday against Benfica. We have been linked with moves for Everton’s Phil Jagielka and Blackburn’s Chris Samba this summer but we have not been able to meet their clubs valuations. Let alone Bolton’s Gary Cahill who will only be sold for £17million.
But Arsenal may not need to worry about those three for much longer as Werder Bremen have announced that they are willing to listen to offers for captain Per Mertesacker. It is believed that they are willing to sell the German international centre-back for as low as £6million as he is in the final year of his contract.
Bremen general manager Klaus Allofs is quoted as saying in The People: “We are willing to discuss a transfer for Per.
“We have promised him we will listen to serious offers.”
Wenger should not waste any time on this one and he should make this deal happen!
