Arsene Wenger has revealed that he expects to hold talks with midfield Mikel Arteta and insists that he wants the Spaniard to stay at the club.
The Gunners boss was speaking prior to Arsenal’s FA Cup semi-final against Reading on Saturday and was asked about the star whose contracts expire in May.
As quoted on the Metro, he said: ‘I think yes, they will be here next year. We will sort that out at the end of May’
Arteta has seen his playing time limited this season due to a combination of injuries and strong competition for places.
