Arsenal star not interested in summer Serie A transfer

Mikel ArtetaThey may just have netted their number one target this summer, but Arsenal fans are looking a little bit puzzled here in the Football Transfer Tavern.

This is after hearing the latest claim from the Daily Star, who report that Radio Blu have been told Mikel Arteta has no plans to leave the club.

Arteta came in for a fair bit of stick from Gunners fans last season and the majority would like to see the Spaniard move on to pastures new this summer.

However, his agent has been doing the press rounds and putting out the word that leaving is not on the agenda.

He claimed: “The player has no intention to leave London,

“We have not spoken to any club and I would like to remind everyone that we are talking about the Arsenal captain, with all respect for Fiorentina.”

Arsene Wenger is looking to bring in at least a couple more top quality signings this summer and would be willing to allow Arteta to leave if an offer around the £6 million mark came in for the former Everton player.

However the Gunners may struggle to sell a 32-year-old who is intent on seeing out his contract at the club.

When the likes of Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira are mentioned, our punters get a whole lot more excited and we think the time has come to say goodbye to Arteta.

Arsenal fans. Do you think there is a future for Arteta at the Emirates Stadium or will he take up a place in the squad that could be given to someone else? Let us know your thoughts below.
