Per Mertesacker is still an Arsenal transfer target

The Daily star understands that Arsene wenger might consider Werder Bremen's skipper Per Mertesacker, a viable option in the wake of his highly publicised, yet dissapointing pursuit of Everton's Phil Jagielka.

The report expects the Arsenal chief to snap the German international who is reportedly eager to join the Gunners, maybe as a direct replacement for the outgoing William Gallas.

The author cited some anonymous sources to buttress his claim, but it's left for you to ponder, if the manager can afford to bankroll another defensive signing given the current options available at his disposal.
