Arsenal ace reveals all on plans for the future

The Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern think his time might be up…

Per Mertesacker hasn’t been a prominent figure at Arsenal this season due to a long-term injury layoff, and that has left the punters in the Tavern questioning his future at the club.

His contract expires at the end of the season, and given the Gunners’ acquisition of Shkodran Mustafi – there appears to be little room for Mertesacker in the Arsenal first team.

It will come as no surprise, then, to learn that German publicationĀ Bild is suggesting that the defender could be set for a move back to Germany – with no new deal on the horizon at Arsenal.

However, for the first time, Mertesacker has come out and discussed his contract situation – and according to Spox, he has confirmed that he wants a new deal first and foremost.

As per Spox, Mertesacker said: “An extension at Arsenal has absolute priority for me“.

He also touched on speculation linking him with a move away, saying: “Everything…is pure speculation and I will not participate in it”

No debate here from Mertesacker – he clearly wants a new deal and is willing to work hard for it.

The Arsenal fans in the Tavern aren’t so sure that a deal will come, though. Unless Mertesacker is willing to take a back seat at Arsenal, there is no real way for him to get back into the first team – and that could spell the end of his tenure.

Our landlord thinks that he could still do a job as an experienced defensive hand – but he will have to return from injury on top form if he wants to earn a renewal.
