Per Mertesacker to be replaced with atletico Lucas Hernandez

Lucas Hernandez has been linked with a move to Arsenal

Per Mertesacker who is the vice-captain at the club but no-one is expecting him to be the captain now that Mikel Arteta is leaving.
There is possibility that he won’t leave himself, Mertesacker’s days as Arsenal’s starting centre-back seem like they could be over. His days seems numbered in the Arsenal defence.
Scoring goals has always been worth more to a transfer fee than stopping them, despite the obvious impact both have on winning or losing games.
Arsene Wenger who has shown signs of losing faith in him.
According to rumours, Lucas Hernandez could be the man to replace him.
Though the is 20-years-old and a product of the Atletico Madrid youth setup, Hernandez is under contract until 2019 meaning he won’t come cheap.
Laurent Koscielny whose age is telling on, might also need replacement. Hernandez might be bought to play with Gabriel and Calum Chambers in a few years rather than immediately, serving as back-up in the meantime.
