The Spanish Mikel Arteta, coach of Arsenal, ruled out the signing of Sergio Agüero, once he ends his contract with Manchester City at the end of the season.
The Argentine forward announced this week that he will abandon City discipline when his contract ends on June 30.
However, Arteta, who coincided with Agüero during his time as Pep Guardiola’s assistant, ruled out that Arsenal will try to sign the attacker.
“No, no,” Arteta said about undertaking Agüero’s incorporation. “We’ll see what happens to him in the future.”
Still, he praised the forward, calling him one of the most important players to elevate Manchester City’s project since his arrival in 2011.
“You need leadership and quality players to start a project like the one they did and Sergio is surely the most visible face of that,” Arteta commented at a press conference.
“Sergio has a unique quality to see spaces that nobody else can and to score goals in a very simple way, so I am sure that he will find the right project.”
