Arsenal star encouraged to ditch Premier League for the Bundesliga
The Arsenal defender's contract runs out in the summer, and so far, no new deal has been tabled for the 32-year-old.
And with Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny striking up a solid partnership in the centre of defence, with Gabriel, Callum Chambers and Rob Holding all waiting in the wings, Mertesacker could choose to call time on his Arsenal career.
The world cup winner would be welcomed by Werder Bremen with open arms it seems, as captain Fritz told Bild: "It would be a good thing for the club, we've talked about it [a return to Bremen]."
