Arsenal latest news: Update on Mikel Arteta's future as manager revealed
Arsenal will not hesitate in sacking Mikel Arteta if the Gunners' form does not substantially improve in the coming weeks, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.
What's been going wrong at Arsenal?
The north Londoners have begun the season woefully and went into the international break off the back of three consecutive Premier League defeats.
In fact, the Gunners' 2-0 loss to Chelsea, which came before a harrowing 5-0 rout at the hands of reigning champions Manchester City, resulted in them making the worst start to a season in the club's 118-year history.
The poor run of form has come despite Arteta being given the opportunity to spend big in the transfer window, with Arsenal forking out £50million to sign England international defender Ben White from Brighton & Hove Albion.
Arteta also parted with close to £60million
What has Dean Jones said about Arteta's future?
But Jones fears the Spaniard's days in the hotseat could be numbered.
He told GMS: "It's a really big two or three months for the club. It's a huge moment for Arteta to try and get things back on track.
"I've been told pretty clearly that things have changed for him this season.
"He's been given a free hit up until now and offered time to settle but I think if Arsenal are in this situation for a couple more months, maybe not even that, then they will have to start questioning whether he is the right man for the job.
"They would actually change managers."
