Deal for Werder Bremen's Mertesacker confirmed by Arsenal

Arsenal have secured the services of Per Mertesacker from Bundesliga club Werder Bremen.

The 26-year old Germany international has joined the Gunners for a reported £10million after the two clubs came to an agreement.

A statement on Arsenal's official website: "Arsenal has confirmed they have agreed terms with Werder Bremen to sign German international defender Per Mertesacker."

The arrival of Mertesacker will provide Arsenal fans with some hope as the North London has required a quality centre-half for a while now and a man who has made 75 international appearances should prove to be a great addition.
