Mikel Arteta set to sign new contract

The Spanish midfielder is clearly satisfied with the Gunners at the moment and reports claim that the former Everton man could be close to signing a new deal 

Things might not have been looking up in the transfer market for Arsene Wenger’s side as they are consigned to lose out on long term target Morgan Schneiderlin to Manchester United but there is one little piece of information that should satisfy or at least please the fans.

Initial reports claim that Arteta was hesitant in signing a new contract and was also considering the possibility of moving to the States to play for an unnamed Major League Soccer (MLS) outfit. However, the player was eventually convinced by Wenger that Arsenal is the place to be for him and now that he has apparently signed a new contract, it is clear that Arsenal might not be making unnecessary moves in the transfer market just to sign a midfielder.
