Wenger defied his own norm in the transfer market and bolstered all areas of his team and this has resulted in competition for places on the our squad.
According to latest report, Arsenal Captain Per Mertesacker has revealed that he wants an Arsenal deal, this is despite keen interest on his service from Bundesliga clubs Hannover and Werder Bremen.
Mertesacker’s contract is due to expire at the end of this season and Arsenal have not approach the BFG for another contract.
But Mertesacker is set to disappoint his suitors as he wants to stay at Emirates Stadium.
“A renewal with Arsenal is my absolute priority,” the German told Spox.
“But we have not made an appointment yet to discuss a new deal.
“Arsenal are my top priority and everything else is just speculation.”
Mertesacker, who arrived at the club in 2011, has nothing but praise for French boss Arsene Wenger.
“Wenger should be immune to any public criticism. He has been at Arsenal for 20 years, helping the club develop step by step,” he added.
“Where else do you still see this? You should look at the bigger picture and he deserves nothing but respect.
“The media are too quick to criticise in my opinion. It is all about results. One day they are celebrating a big win over Ludogorets and then three days later there is criticism after a draw with Middlesbrough.
“How much will the team, the coach and the club have changed during these three days to merit such a different opinion?”
Wenger signed Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi in the summer and the injury for Mertesacker has somewhat pushed him down the selection perking order of Arsene Wenger.
