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.”
