Wenger Ready to Launch Bid For Mertesacker

ARSENAL are ready to launch a £10m bid for Per Mertesacker next week – if Everton refuse to budge on Phil Jagielka.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has already had a £14m bid for England defender Jagielka rejected by the Merseysiders.

The Frenchman is still weighing up whether to raise that offer to £18m – but Starsport ­ understands David Moyes has said that Jagielka must not be sold with the new season only weeks away. So Wenger is looking again at German giant Mertesacker, who has two years left on his contract at Werder Bremen.

World Cup star Mertesacker, 25, would jump at the chance to join Arsenal.

And sources close to him last night confirmed that his future will be resolved next week.(Daily Week)
