Mertesacker, 27, was hurt in the Gunners' 2-1 Premier League win against Sunderland but has focused on his fitness while on the sidelines and says he could be in great shape by the time the championships begin on June 8.
"I think that by the time the Euro starts, I will have achieved a level of fitness like never before," he told German magazine Sport-Bild.
