Arsene Wenger is expected to provide an update on Per Mertesacker this evening amid concerns that the German defender has been ruled out for the remainder of 2016.
Mertesacker was part of the side which drew 1-1 with Lens last Friday in Arsenal’s first preseason game of the summer, but despite playing 90 minutes, the club announced yesterday that the 31-year-old would not be a part of the travelling squad to America after sustaining a knee injury. No specifics were given although rumours began to surface suggesting Mertesacker may miss up-to five months due to ligament damage. If confirmed, the Arsenal boss could be forced into the transfer market to provide defensive cover. Laurent Koscielny is expected to miss the opener against Liverpool due to his involvement at the Euros which would leave Calum Chambers to partner Gabriel Paulista [currently suffering from tonsillitis] in the heart of the Gunners defence.
