Arsenal legend Adams gives Mertesacker his approval

Arsenal legend Tony Adams is impressed by defender Per Mertesacker's progress this season.

Adams believes Mertesacker is forging a strong understanding with Thomas Vermaelen and Laurent Koscielny at the heart of defence.

"I've seen Per Mertesacker a few times now, he interests me and I think he is a good player," Adams told "I think he is very intelligent and he knows how to play central defence.

"I'm really looking forward to seeing more of him because I don't think Thomas Vermaelen has actually played enough with him just yet. But they could be a fantastic central defensive partnership and would certainly excite me.

"It'd be like going back to the days of Adams, Bould, Keown maybe."
