Arsenal legend Tony Adams is impressed by defender Per Mertesacker’s progress this season.
The former Gunners great believes the German international centre back is forging a strong understanding with Thomas Vermaelen and Laurent Koscielny at the heart of defence.
Adams told Arsenal.com : “I’ve seen Per Mertesacker a few times now, he interests me and I think he is a good player,”.
“I think he is very intelligent and he knows how to play central defence.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing more of him because I don’t think Thomas Vermaelen has actually played enough with him just yet. But they could be a fantastic central defensive partnership and would certainly excite me.
“It’d be like going back to the days of Adams, Bould, Keown maybe.”
