Tony Adams Full Of Praise For ‘Intelligent’ Per Mertesacker

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.”
