Arteta was asked about a new deal at yesterday's pre-match presser for their clash with Manchester City.'
The Gunners manager replied: "Yes, but I have to earn that. Now in football you have to earn it every week and things change really quickly, so we have to be on our toes.
"Obviously, it's my responsibility to plan medium and long-term as well, but that's with or without me.
"At the end, the time that I'm going to be at this football club will be related to how much I can move the club forward, improve the team and be a success on the pitch and get the values and the vision that I want to implement into this club as well off the pitch."
