Arsenal are hoping to bring in some defensive cover after Arsene Wenger confirmed Per Mertesacker will be side-lined for "a few months" due to injury.
The German defender was injured during last Fridays’ pre-season friendly with Lens and although initial reports suggested the knock was only minor, further tests have revealed the extent of the damage and Mertesacker immediately went under the knife. Wenger was reluctant to give a definitive timeline at this stage although he did admit that he was hoping to sign cover during the interim. "We have to look for an option to get a bit more experience," said the Gunners boss. "With Per being out, we are a bit short on the experience front and we are looking to bring somebody in." One player who has been linked, is Valencia’s centre-back Shkodran Mustafi, and with the Spanish club looking to balance their books, the German international could be an ideal replacement.
