Top European club ‘sound out’ Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has attracted interest from a top club.

Mikel Arteta took the reigns at Arsenal at the back end of 2019 at a time when the Gunners were struggling.

The Spaniard won the FA Cup during his first half-season in charge of the north Londoners.

2020/21 did not go as well and Arsenal then missed out on Champions League football on the final day of 2021/22.

This past season, meanwhile, Arsenal challenged for the title and finished 2nd, securing Champions League football for the first time since 2017.

Arteta, along with Edu Gaspar, has built one of the youngest, most talented squads in the Premier League, which is sure to win trophies in the coming years.

Losing Arteta would be a big blow to their ongoing project, but they seemingly have nothing to worry about right now.

Jacobs wrote: “It’s perhaps no surprise that Luis Campos sounded out Mikel Arteta, especially with PSG being one of the Arsenal boss’ former clubs. But it was nothing more than that. Arteta has no interest in leaving Arsenal at this point. And PSG are advancing now with Luis Enrique who is expected to become their new manager.

“Although Arsenal couldn’t hang on and win the Premier League, qualifying for the Champions League is going to allow for a healthy summer spend. Arteta has also been vital in extending the contracts of Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and William Saliba to name but three. As previously revealed, Arsenal had high confidence on all of those extensions, and Saliba, who has agreed terms now, will be finalised and announced soon.”
