Does Mertesacker still have a role to play at Arsenal?

Per Mertesacker is claimed to be in line for a new contract at present, but what role will he have to play for Arsenal next season?

Arsenal are being linked with both Alvaro Morata and Andrea Belotti at present, but which would be better for Arsenal?

Arsenal transfer rumour round-up – Carracso, Bakayoko, Manolas, Philipp

January is not expected to be a busy month of transfers for Arsenal, but that has not stopped the rumours from circulating.
