BREAKING NEWS: Arsenal Close In On £8m Centre Back
Arsenal are closing in on another defensive signing, after widespread reports claim they have agreed an £8.2m deal for German centre back Per Mertesacker.
The Gunners are desperately trying to find defensive reinforcements following Sunday’s 8-2 defeat to Man Utd, and a £6.2m deal for Brazilian left back Andre Santos will be completed shortly.
But a centre back is also required and with Arsenal failing to agree upon a deal with Bolton and Everton for Cahill or Jagielka, it seems Wenger has been forced to look outside the premiership for a solution.
Several media outlets are claiming an £8.2m deal has been agreed with Werder Bremen for Mertesacker and at 6 feet 6 inches, he certainly has the ariel presence Arsenal have been crying out for at the back.
