Mikel Arteta outlines his goals after signing new Arsenal contract

Arsenal are preparing for another crucial weekend to finish in the top four as they could potentially take a crucial step towards the Champions League.

On Saturday, their local and positional rivals Tottenham Hotspur face the unenviable task of taking on Liverpool at Anfield. That means that when the Gunners take on relegation-threatened Leeds United on Sunday, they could potentially have a chance to go four points clear.

That would be a huge boost for manager Mikel Arteta and his players given Thursday’s derby with Spurs is a big deal.

Will Arsenal be four points clear of Spurs by the end of this round? Let us know in the comments below!

Arteta signs new contract

Although Arsenal’s status as a Champions League side is yet to be secured for next season, the club clearly believe Arteta is the man to take them there.

On Friday it was confirmed that the former midfielder has signed a new deal at Emirates Stadium after helping the team make some significant improvements this season.

The news will delight Arteta, whose position has been questioned during various difficult periods on the north London sidelines in the past. However, those reservations have seemingly trickled down to those who matter at the club.

“I’m excited, grateful and really, really happy today,” he said. “When I spoke to Josh [Kroenke] he could see the bat in the same place and he wanted to take the bat the way I wanted. So anything he said and anything Stan said when I was with them both, they always delivered.”

Saliba transfer claim made

Former Arsenal striker Paul Merson believes defender William Saliba should benefit the club if there are reservations about his ability to play in the Premier League.

The young Frenchman has performed well at Marseille on loan this season, sparking excitement in the Gunners fanbase over what he could potentially offer when he returns to the club this summer.

Arsenal have found a solid pairing in Gabriel and Ben White this season and as such, Merson believes the club can afford to capitalize on Saliba if he’s still not ready.

“There must be a reason why he has been loaned out by the club three times. Was he ripped in training? I don’t understand why he’s still on loan.

“Arsenal paid a lot of money for him but I think if someone gave them their money back they would take it straight away. He’s been there for almost three years now and he can’t look inside. Maybe Mikel Arteta watched him train and decided he was far from ready.”

Nelson reaches European final

Feyenoord meet Roma in the final of the first Europa Conference League, with Arsenal loanee Reiss Nelson playing a key role in this memorable season.

Nelson started both games in the semi-final against Marseille as the Dutch won the first home game 3-2 and then prevailed 0-0 at the Stade Velodrome.

Overall, the loan spell has been a challenge for the 22-year-old as he has only made nine appearances in the Eredivisie this season. However, he has carved his place in the starting XI in recent weeks and still has a chance of ending the season on high against Jose Mourinhos Giallorossi.
