Mertesacker in talks over new Arsenal deal

Germany international Per Mertesacker has revealed that he has opened talks with Arsenal over a new contract with the club.

Mertesacker’s current contract with the Gunners is set to expire in the summer of 2011.

“I am very delighted here with the club, especially after the first year that was tough for me, a very tough challenge,” Mertesacker said.

“The boss always trusted me in a special way. So I think it is a little reward that we talk a bit on things, because I’ve one and a half years left.

“Overall there’s no rush but it seems to be that some guys are delighted with my performance at the moment. I am pleased with the situation.”
