The Serbian international has long been considered one of the most solid centre-backs in the Bundesliga, forming a fine partnership with Mats Hummels in Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Hummels has also been linked with Arsenal in the past, though with the German now looking more likely to join Manchester United, the Gunners hope they can land his defensive partner.

Mertesacker’s poor recent form has persuaded Arsene Wenger to shop for another player in defence this summer, despite also signing Gabriel from Villarreal this January.
