Arsenal fans should be over the moon about the recent Mikel Arteta news

Posted to X (via Pain in the Arsenal), Fabrizio Romano revealed an update on Mikel Arteta's contract talks with Arsenal. The transfer expert claimed that talks are progressing well, as both Mikel Arteta and Arsenal align with their visions and they both want to continue the journey beyond Arteta's current contract expiry in 2025.

What's even more fitting for Arsenal fans is that Mikel Arteta will become one of the more generously-paid managers in Europe. This is excellent to see, and it shows a true turning point in the club's history. Previously, the club would cut corners with their budget and prioritise the wrong things but in this case, paying Arteta generously is the right priority.

After all, there are not many better managers out there on the market and still being a young head coach, he will be wanted by some of the top European clubs in coming years. Therefore, Arsenal are right to do everything in their power to keep him on their books.

Hopefully this is a sign that the Arsenal higher-ups are willing to not only willing to invest into Mikel Arteta but also into his vision. After all, they are annoyingly close to winning the Premier League, having missed out by just two points last season. For the upcoming campaign, they must sign some world-class players, including a striker most notably, to bolster the squad.
