Arsenal to hand Mikel Arteta $250m this summer
The Spanish manager has guided the club to their first top-four finish since 2016 and as a reward for this season’s successful campaign, Arteta has been given $250m to improve on a squad that is not believed to have the depth to challenge City for the Premier League title just yet.
And according to The Daily Mail writer Sami Mokbel, the former Everton and Arsenal player has already written a six-man shortlist comprised of West Ham United captain Declan Rice, Crystal Palace pair Marc Guehi and Wilfried Zaha, Moussa Diaby, Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia and Brighton and Hove Albion breakout star Moises Caicedo.
