Mertesacker made five appearances in December, missing only the trip to Olympiacos in the Champions League and the home win over Newcastle United.
On being drawn against Bayern Munich in the Champions League round of 16 , he said, "We will face a good team in Germany.
They are top of their league and went through to the knockout stage in a phenomenal way. They only conceded seven goals in the first half of the season.
Maybe it's a good opportunity for us to face them in February because we will be in our rhythm. We will hopefully go through the Christmas period in a strong way.
We can do that. That's the most important thing for us, not what's going to happen in May. We have a few targets in our team that are possible this year.
We won't talk about it, we'll just see what happens in the next few important weeks on the pitch. It's a special game for German players to play against a team from their home country.
Mertesacker was a mainstay in March, playing every single minute of Arsenal's four games. The centre back was on target in the defeat at Tottenham and was a key component in the defence that kept clean sheets against both Bayern Munich and Swansea City.

He made a number of important tackles during the match and his performance was praised by opposition manager Antonio Conte , who stated that Mertesacker was a "perfect example for any young professional football player," adding that "what he did today was just a consequence of an unbelievable attitude every day.
Arsenal would later confirm the —18 season would be Mertesacker's last, before becoming the head of the club's academy the following year.
