The Gunners have been outstanding this season, currently leading the league with 73 points. Arsenal has won 23, drawn 4, and lost 3 of their 30 games.
Following his success with Arsenal this season, Arteta has been pursued by a number of top clubs, including Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

However, Agbonlahor has urged Arteta to turn down interest from other clubs and focus solely on Arsenal.
“I don’t think Arsenal can be considered Champions League contenders yet. That’s a while away. Real Madrid are in that bracket, every season.“
But there’s no reason why Arteta can’t make Arsenal contenders for that competition.The talk of him going to Madrid, I don’t see why he would want to go right now.”
