A former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville, has said Mikel Arteta is “punching above his weight” for requesting huge transfer budget at Arsenal.
While speaking during his personal podcast, Neville claimed Arteta would love the kind of huge transfer budget Frank Lampard has been handed at Chelsea this summer.
Arteta who took over Arsenal last December has went on to win the FA Cup.
The Spaniard also began the 2020/2021 season with victory in the Community Shield against Liverpool.
Arsenal have also claimed two wins out of two in the Premier League.
Recall Arsenal defeated West Ham United 2 – 1 to claim two win a row to seat atop of the league.
