Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed on Thursday that he has agreed to trigger a one-year contract extension for captain Per Mertesacker. Mertesacker has yet to play for Arsenal this term after suffering a serious knee injury in a pre-season friendly against Lens. The 32-year-old defender’s current deal was due to expire at the end of the season and Wenger wants to keep the World Cup winner for another 12 months.
