MIKEL ARTETA has brushed the Barcelona links aside claiming that he is ‘proud’ and ‘happy’ with his managerial role at Arsenal.
The Catalan chiefs are reportedly eyeing up Arteta as a replacement for Xavi who failed to help Barcelona secure Champions League last-16 qualification.
Meanwhile, Arteta received a huge boost on the injury front as Bukayo Saka and Oleksandr Zinchenko were both pictured in training ahead of Arsenal’s final Europa league match against FC Zurich.
Saka, 21, was forced off with a leg injury during the 5-0 Nottingham Forest thrashing, while Zinchenko hasn’t featured for almost five weeks.
Elsewhere, the Gunners have been handed a pursuit in their interest of Wilfried Zaha.
Zaha, 29, will wait and see where the Eagles finish this season before making a decision on his future.
