​Future of Arsenal defender Mertesacker still in doubt

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted the Gunners have yet to offer Per Mertesacker a new contract despite his present deal expiring at the end of the season.

The 31-year-old is currently sidelined until the New Year after suffering a serious knee injury.

Wenger said: "At the moment we have not dealt yet with that [contract] situation.

"We are not especially [waiting for him to be fit] but of course he has to come back. We will see together at some stage when he will be back in full training."
