Arsenal keen to tie down Mertesacker

Arsenal are determined to secure the services of German centre-back Per Mertesacker.

The 29-year old has emerged as a vital element in Arsene Wenger's line-up after taking time to settle following his 2011 move from Werder Bremen and the Gunners are looking to tie him down to a new deal.

Mertesacker has 18 months remaining on his current contract but Arsenal want him to sign a fresh four-year proposal in a bid to ward any interested clubs off him.
