Mertesacker won't quit Bremen

Werder Bremen defender Per Mertesacker says he is not interested in listening to any possible offers as he is solely focused on his responsibilities with the Bundesliga club.

• On The Move: January 11
• Arsenal eye Hazard swoop
• Wenger eyes new defender

Mertesacker has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger admitting he may be forced to sign a new centre back following injuries to Thomas Vermaelen and Sebastien Squillaci.

However, the Germany international, 26, has 18 months remaining on his current contract and remains committed to helping Bremen improve on 14th place in the Bundesliga table.

"We are in a difficult moment with Werder and we should not be talking about me at this time,'' Mertesacker told Kreiszeitung. "I am needed here for our day-to-day work and it is my duty to concentrate on that. I cannot deal with anything else.

"Like I say, most of it does not even get through to me and I have told my agent that he should leave me in peace. In certain situations, players should protect themselves by not losing track of the most important things in their job."
