The Gunners’ boss

Mikel Arteta

recently spoke about the 30-year-old’s future, saying they wait to weigh their options at the end of the season.

"It's the situation that we have and we have to accept it,”

Arteta said.

"I cannot ask anything from the player… and it's not an individual situation because it has a knock-on effect.

"All of this we have had to deal with in the past and still now, we have to see what the best option is for everybody at the end of the season.

"I had no doubts about his motivation and if I did I would probably have decided to do something different in the summer if the motivation was just his financial future.

"It's not the case with Laca and he has shown that since I've been here every single day and that he remains a really important player for us.

"I think he was able to transmit that energy and that was contagious for the rest of the team and for the stadium.

"He created a different atmosphere straight away, with his determination and his quality and he tried to change the result straight away and had that belief in himself that he could do it."
