Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker out for five months – reports

If true the news would come as a massive blow to Arsene Wenger.

Mertesacker was expected to be appointed Arsenal captain for the forthcoming season.

But the 31-year-old looks to have already got the Arsenal captain injury curse, suffered by past captains Mikel Arteta and Thomas Vermaelen, before he has officially been given the job.

When Vermaelen and Arteta were given the captaincy roles full time, they both barely featured in the first-team due to injuries.
