Arteta insists he is not aware of any developments. Instead he said competition for places is to blame for the forward’s recent absence.

“Regarding his contractual situation with the club, I just want to convince him he has a future at the club, not sending the opposite message,” Arteta said.

“He’s showing a real hunger and desire to be with us and we’re trying to get something done because we want him to stay.”
