It is hard to keep track of all the transfer activity at Arsenal today and I am sure tomorrow is going to be worse as the window closes.
The search for a new centre-back signing continues and it looks like Arsene Wenger has decided to turn to German international Per Mertesacker.
Mertesacker is in the final year of his contract at Werder Bremen and the German club may be looking to sell him now rather than let him go on a free next summer. It is being reported that Arsenal are having talks with Werder Bremen today about this deal and it could be concluded in the next 24 hours.
I wonder if this means that Wenger has given up hope on signing Bolton’s Gary Cahill and would rather go for the cheaper £6million option of Mertesacker.
Who would you rather we sign, Cahill or Mertesacker?
