Arteta has no appetite to sign a new long-term deal at Arsenal

Mikel Arteta has emerged as one of the finest managers in Europe as his Arsenal team hits top form.

They are at the top of the Premier League table after making a solid start to this season.

Reports earlier in the campaign indicated that Barcelona was keeping tabs on the former midfielder as he succeeds at the Emirates.

It didn’t seem they would move for him soon because Xavi, a Camp Nou legend, is their boss now.

However, as Arteta keeps doing well, it is inevitable that clubs will be eyeing a swoop for him.

A report on Sport claims Manchester City also considers him the ideal replacement for Pep Guardiola when the Spaniard finally leaves the club.

Because of this, it claims, Arsenal wants Arteta to sign a new long-term deal. However, the Spaniard does not have an appetite to overcommit to staying at the London club.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Arteta has been successful as an Arsenal manager even though he has not won a major trophy yet.

It is normal that clubs will want him to work for them, but we must remain focused on helping him to stay happy in London.

As long as he is happy, we expect him to stay loyal to us as well.

    1. A manager of Arteta calibre will to go to a club that will be ready to cough out the millions to buy players that he believes will give him results unfortunately Arsenal does not seem to be one of those clubs considering their inert policy in relation to recruitment over the years.

  1. did he not already sign a new deal before last seasons conclusion?

    why would anyone be talking of a new deal for him now?

  2. JA’ s ridiculous opinion that the FA Cup is NOT a major trophy, shows how out of touch CERTAIN of their writers really are with what matters to we fans. Certain of their inhouse writers just blithely talk absolute nonsesse, such is their lack of nous!

    1. It wasn’t a major trophy when a certain Frenchman was winning it ,strange that wouldn’t you say jonny boy

  3. We need club continental trophies like. champtions League and Europa league. Until Arteta wins any, he remains an average coach, FA Cup, notwithstanding. He should take it easy by resisting any attempt to overrate himself. Focus on the job. Arsenal are the best. We move!

  4. The desparate and sisnister ploy to destabilize the Arsenal is on overdrive and full season. Arteta and the boys know about such and are appropriately prepared to shug off all this nonsense.

  5. Arteta has 2 seasons after this concludes. I’m really hopeful that MA will continue in his current vein of success and that the club reward him in due course

    However, success, year after year is not guaranteed and may saddle the club with having to pay him off if it all goes wrong. I wonder how much Abramovitch forked out over the years sacking this manager and that?

    Personally, I’d rather get to the end of the season to see where we are before enhancing Arteta’s pay packet further

  6. Not won a major trophy?
    FA CUP !!!!!!!!!!
    No appetite?
