Arsenal’s German defender, Per Mertescker may be on his way out of the Emirates stadium at the end of the season as Arsene Wenger has intensified the search for the German’s replacement.
There has been no fallout between Wenger and Mertesacker but reports from the Emirates suggest that Arsene Wenger is feeling like Mertesacker doesn’t complement his defense as much as he would want. Mertesacker has formed a formidable partnership with Koscielny over the past two years but the arrival of Gabriel has produced a serious threat to Mertesacker’s position and to make things worse, Arsene Wenger is on the search for a new central defender.
Mertesacker would have a few months to impress both his manager and the fans of Arsenal or to look for a new club. Neither of those tasks should be too hard for the world cup winning defender.
