Liverpool ace Steven Gerrard is urging Everton midfielder Mikel Arteta to declare for England.
Arteta has never been capped by reigning European and world champions Spain and qualifies for England through the residency rule having lived here for more than five years.
Gerrard told talkSPORT: "I'd certainly love nothing better than to see Mikel Arteta available for England.
"You want to play with the best players, and if it makes the England squad better, of course I'd like to see it.
"I think it happens to most national teams [that they pick non-nationals] but it's up to him if he wants to make himself available."
