New Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed that he will meet with senior club officials over transfers.

He revealed this during his post-match press conference after his first win as a manager.

Mikel Arteta recorded his first victory as an Arsenal manager after the Gunners beat top-four rivals Manchester United at home to climb up the Premier League table.

Arteta and his Arsenal players beat Manchester United 2-0 at home courtesy the first-half goals from Nicholas Pepe and Sokratis Papasthathopoulos.

The win over Manchester United took them into the top half of the league table.

The Gunners had started the game in 13th spot mainly due to the win for Southampton over Tottenham Hotspur in an earlier league clash at the St. Mary’s Stadium.

Arsenal began the latest set of league games played on New Year’s Day in the 12th spot and the win for the Saints pushed them back by one spot.

Arteta was asked about young Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah when he revealed that he has a transfer meeting with both sporting director Edu and chief executive Raul Sanllehi.

Eddie Nketiah spent the first half of this season on loan at Championship highflyers Leeds United and he’s expected to return to Arsenal after failing to get adequate minutes despite performing well in his cameo appearances here and there.
