Arsene Wenger will act quickly after Sol Campbell’s surprise exit to Newcastle. We can reveal that Arsenal are actively seeking to sign German World Cup Star Mertesacker in a reported £10 million deal.

Per Mertesacker has always been a possible target for Wenger but now it is simply essential that Wenger gets his man to plug the hole left by Campbell. If reports are to be believed then chief executive Ivan Gazidis is hoping to wrap up a deal in the next 48 hours. If by any chance the deal falls through then Arsenal will turn their attention to either Ajax’s Jan Vertonghen or Dynamo Kiev’s Senegalese defender Pape Diakhate.
