Arteta responded to a question about the possibility of renewing Nani, saying, “Let us take matters step by step in hope and not anticipate events.”
“What I can say is that I am happy with Al Nani’s performance and what he is offering, and I hope that he will continue to do so throughout the season.”
Arteta continues, “I think he has responded well to all the challenges that we thrust upon him, and has proven what he can do since returning from loan.”
“Now everyone knows what Nini can offer, so I am happy with what he has to offer to the team,” he said.
Mohamed Al-Nani returned to Arsenal this season after a season spent on loan with Besiktas.
Al Nani has participated in 9 matches so far in various tournaments this season, and he has reserved a place for himself in the starting line-up during many matches.
The 28-year-old expires his contract with Arsenal at the end of the current season.
Arsenal is preparing to face Molde this evening, Thursday, in the third round matches of the group stage of the European League.
