Arsene Wenger has indicated an interest in retaining veteran depth indicating that he wants both Santi Cazorla and Per Mertesacker back for another year at the club.
The big German is unlikely to get a lot of time upon his return but with Gabriel struggling and Rob Holding and Calum Chambers as yet unproven the presence of an experienced center back behind Koscielny and Mustafi seems like a sensible plan. The Gunners seem to find themselves short handed at key positions late in Premier League seasons recently so even if he isn't going to start much the presence of a World Cup winner on the bench could help the likes of Holding and Chambers as they develop.
