Gunners in Mertesacker talks

The 26-year-old has 75 international caps

Arsenal are in talks with Werder Bremen defender Per Mertesacker as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his defensive options ahead of tomorrow’s transfer window closure.

The 26-year-old has 75 international caps for Germany and has made over 100 appearances for Werder Bremen since joining the club for €5 million from Hannover in 2006.

Mertesacker’s signing could signal the end of Arsenal’s interest in Bolton defender Gary Cahill who is still priced at 1/2 to leave Bolton this summer and 6/4 to stay at the club.

The Gunners are also believed to be close to completing the signings of Andre Santos from Fenerbahce and Park Chu-Young from Monaco.
