Arsenal transfers: Mikel Arteta’s agent rejects exit talk
Arsenal transfers: Mikel Arteta's agent insists that the midfielder won't be quitting the club this summer
Mikel Arteta has no interest in leaving Arsenal this summer, the midfielder’s agent has said.
The 32-year-old Spaniard has been linked with a Fiorentina and Athletic Bilbao as he enters the final year of his Gunners contract.
However, the player’s representative Inaki Ibanez insists that there is no chance of his client leaving Emirates Stadium ahead of next season.
“I haven’t heard from any clubs,” Ibanez told Radio Blu.
“What are the chances of him leaving? He’s the captain of Arsenal, he is an Arsenal player and he’s happy here.
“He also has a contract for another year.”
Arteta, who joined Arsenal from Everton back in 2011, made 31 Premier League appearances for Arsene Wenger’s side last season, scoring two goals.
