Mikel Arteta is set for transfer talks with Arsenal chiefs on Thursday after guiding his Gunners side to a New Year’s Day victory over Manchester United .

Arteta will discuss his immediate plans for Eddie Nketiah with technical director Edu and head of football Raul Sanllehi at the meeting, while the future of Granit Xhaka will also be on the agenda, the mirror reports.

Arsenal got 2020 off to the best possible start with a 2-0 success over United at the Emirates on Wednesday, with Arteta’s first victory as manager ending a dismal run of four Premier League games without a win.
