Arsenal star set for new deal
Per Mertesacker has impressed this season as the Gunners currently lead the Premier League, following a blistering start. Wenger wants to reward the big German defender.
Mertesacker, 29, has been in excellent form, and showing exactly why Arsene Wenger spent £9.9m to bring him from Werder Bremen. Arsenal host Napoli in midweek at the Emirates on Tuesday night in the Champions League, and Mertesacker will face summer transfer target Higuain.
Wenger said of Higuain & the visit of Napoli: “As we know, Real Madrid sold two great players. One of them went to Napoli, one to Arsenal. So it is 1-1 on that front.”
Arsenal have lost just one of their first six matches in this Premier League season, and lead neighbours Spurs by two points.
