Arteta ‘happy and privileged’ at Arsenal amid Barcelona links

Reports have linked the Gunners manager with the top job at the Camp Nou, should Joan Laporta win the upcoming presidential elections
Mikel Arteta has played down reports linking him with Barcelona – saying he is “privileged and happy” at Arsenal.

The Gunners boss has been linked with a possible move to the Camp Nou this week, with Joan Laporta said to be eying Arteta as a possible replacement for Ronald Koeman, should he be voted into power during the upcoming Barcelona presidential elections.

But the Spaniard has played down the suggestions, insisting his only focus now is on continuing the work he is doing in north London.
