Arteta likely to sign new Arsenal deal before start of new s

Arsenal transfer news expert Charles Watts has predicted that Mikel Arteta will sign a new contract with the Gunners before the start of the 2024/2025 season.

The Spanish tactician finished second on the league table in successive seasons with the Gunners and has turned the club once again into an English and European powerhouse.

With Arteta’s contract due to expire in 2025, fans of the club are understandably anxious to see their former captain extend his contract as clubs across Europe would be keen to poach him if he becomes available.

Speaking exclusively to CaughtOffside for his latest Daily Briefing column, Watts on Wednesday explained that there is no need for Gooners to be concerned, as Arteta will likely put pen to paper on a contract extension before the start of the 2024/25 campaign starts.

“Talks with happen between Arsenal and Mikel Arteta over a new contract this summer,” Watts said.

“As he admitted himself a couple of weeks ago, all his focus over the last few months has been centred around the title race. His future has not been something he has been thinking about.

“But that shouldn’t be a concern for fans. Yes, he now only has a year left on his contract, but I have no doubt that he will sign an extension before the start of the 2024/25 campaign.”

He added: “There have been tentative links to other clubs, especially Barcelona. But there is nothing in that right now. I’m sure he will go there one day, but not for a while yet. His immediate future is very much at Arsenal. He is well aware that the job in North London is far from done.”

The Gunners are expected to reinforce their squad ahead of next season.
