Mikel Arteta Not Bothered About His Arsenal Future

Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta is relaxed about his contract situation with few months left to the end of his current deal.

The Gunners skipper, who moved to north London from Everton in 2011, will become a free agent at the end of the season, but says he is not concerned about is long-term future at the Premier League club.

“In May, when everything is fine, we will sit down and talk and it will take five minutes,” Arteta is quoted as saying by Goal.com.

The Spaniard has made just 12 appearances for Arsenal this season and has not featured for the side since picking up an ankle injury in November.

He says his focus is on staging a successful comeback to action with the second-placed team.

“My only aim is to get back fit and try to perform on the pitch,” he continued.

“As long as I do that I am sure that I will continue with this club, with the relationship I have with the club and the respect I have from everybody here.

“If I don’t do that then I am not going to be here because I don’t want to be somewhere where I cannot perform at my best and give what I think I can give.”

Arsenal face Reading in the semi-final of the FA Cup at Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.
