Ian Wright has given his verdict on whether not winning the Premier League title would result in Mikel Arteta leaving Arsenal.

The Gunners fought until the final weeks of last season although eventual champions Manchester City pipped them to the title just a few weeks before the campaign’s conclusion.

Arsenal have suffered three defeats in all competitions this season. And they currently sit third in the premier league table, one point off leaders Manchester City, but with a favourable fixture run-in to come in the build up to Christmas, Arsenal could find themselves once again at the summit at the turn of the year.

Arsenal icon Wright was asked about the club’s trophy ambitions and how things could affect Arteta if the season ends with no silverware for his former club.

“I don’t think so. It would depend on the manner,” he admitted on Stick To Football when asked if Arteta would leave Arsenal if they don’t lift silverware in May 2024.

“He’s making decisions already, he’s brought the goalkeeper in, people are questioning some of his signings.

“I think he’s somebody who is very tunnel vision in what he wants to do. He is someone who when he sees something, he is going to go for what he’s trying to do. And I think he’ll be judged at the end of the season if he can do it. But I feel to try and chase down Manchester City with what they are doing, the margins what you are trying to gain are very tough and it’s going to be tough for anybody to try and do it, not just Mikel.”
