After the news yesterday that Mertesacker will most likely consider his options (i.e. leave) this season once he’s returned from his injury, it seems German club Hannover would like to sign him.
Mertesacker’s contract expires this summer and with the purchase of Mustafi, it looks like his chances will be limited, so it looks like he may move on.
Hannover’s said they’d need to get back to the Bundesliga before any deal, and their Sporting Director said:
“A transfer is still far away now and it seems like a crazy thing to even discuss it. But anything can happen in football. Everybody knows what Hannover means to Per. Maybe we can make him enthusiastic about a return…”

Theo came in second with 23.2% of the vote compared to 39.4% for the Chilean. Read more.
Rumours flying around today that Alexis and Mesut Ozil are after ‘mega-deals’ of around £250,000 a week to keep them at The Emirates.
Looks like Stan may have to ask for that £3m back after all, especially with Bellerin, iWobi and Santi all after new deals soon…
