Arsenal is set to hand manager Mikel Arteta a new deal following the good work he has done with the club.

According to the Sun, the Spaniard will be handed a pay rise of £8.3million-a-year deal this summer with the manager having 16 months left on his current deal.

The report states that the club owner Stan Kroenke wants to hand Arteta a new three-year deal which will be worth £25m for the Premier League’s youngest boss.

Arteta’s current salary is £5m a year and Kroenke wants him to earn something close to his mentor Pep Guardiola who is on £20m a year at the Etihad.

New Spurs boss Antonio Conte and Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp are both paid around £15m per year and even Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers currently pockets around double Arteta’s annual salary.
