Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has hinted that he is close to signing a new contract with the Premier League club. Arteta’s current deal with the Gunners is set to expire in the summer of 2025.

The 42-year-old manager is already gearing up for next season, having assembled nine players not participating in Euro 2024 or the Copa América for a summer training camp in Marbella.

In an interview with ESPN, Arteta shared, “There is no update [on his contract] at the moment. The thing that hasn’t changed is how happy I am, how valued I feel here, and how much I love representing this club.”
