The Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern think that his departure is looking more and more likely…
Next summer is set to be a very busy one for the Gunners. Several key stars are facing the difficult proposition of contract expiry – and a couple are expected to be made surplus to requirements at the Emirates.
A few of the Arsenal fans by the bar are touting it as the biggest summer at the club for 20 years – and it is hard to disagree.
Whilst Arsene Wenger is receiving much of the attention in the Football Transfer Tavern – another Arsenal constant over the last five years is also facing the chop – German veteran Per Mertesacker.
With no new deal on the table as of yet, Mertesacker could be free to sign for another club as early as January – and it does not look like he will be short of suitors.
Hoffenheim were linked with a move yesterday, and it would appear that the list of clubs keen on the German are growing by the day…
Whilst he does not go into further detail, it appears clear that Bremen would be keen to make the deal a reality.
Furthermore, they would no doubt represent a more attractive option than Hannover for Mertesacker.
The German looks set to have some very important discussions come January…
Arsenal fans – will he leave?
