Arsene Wenger faces competition from Liverpool in the race to buy Per Mertesacker.

The Arsenal boss has been a fan of the German defender for a few seasons now and even tried to bring him to the Emirates Stadium last Summer.

It is now being reported that he has just made another £8 Million bid for the player, but Roy Hodgson is also in talks with Werder Bremen officials, who would like to receive £10 Million for their star.

This could spark a bidding war, with both Arsenal and Liverpool in need of reinforcements at the back.

Wenger is aware that Thomas Vermaelen will take a while to come back from a long-term lay-off and he would like to have Mertersacker in the squad to face Barcelona in February.

Meanwhile at Anfield Jamie Carragher is out for three months with a dislocated shoulder and Daniel Agger needs a top class partner in defense.
