In order to do that he needs to feel valued.

I think he needs to feel that he belongs to us and we want him and then he really needs to believe that we can take this club forward the way we want to do and he's going to be a key player to do that.

I think at the moment I'm extremely happy with how he's been performing and behaving.

I think I've got a really good relationship with him, where we can discuss face-to-face a lot of things and so far as I'm aware I think he's very happy at the club." VALENCIA, SPAIN (FILE - MAY 8, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 4.

But it's not about who do we want to attract as well, it's how happy the players that are here and how convinced they are that they are at the right place and as well, because it's our obligation almost to be fighting for every trophy and playing in the Champions League with this club." 8.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ARSENAL MANAGER, MIKEL ARTETA, ON RETURNING TO TRAINING, SAYING: "The most important thing was to provide the players a safe environment to work where they could feel that there was no risk or very, very limited risk for them to develop their profession.

I think we have managed to do that and from now on, the physical part of it is really good, but the mental side as well.

It's been a challenge over the last three months and now let's see how ready we are to compete." MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, UK (FILE - SEPTEMBER 30, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 10.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ARSENAL MANAGER, MIKEL ARTETA, ON PEP GUARDIOLA, SAYING: "Well he was an influence for me since I was 15-years old and we met in Barcelona both as players and then obviously in my coaching career and in my personal life, he has an enormous influence.

If I have to talk about the person who he is, he values the way he's treated me and how he deals with the players and the staff around him, it's phenomenal.

And as a coach I've learnt so much from him.

We've spent some amazing moments togethers, some difficult ones as well, but the experience next to him has been incredible." STORY: Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says it is the club's responsibility to convince captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang that he should continue his career in north London.

The Gabon international, whose deal ends in June 2021, has scored 61 goals in 97 appearances since joining from Borussia Dortmund in 2018 but has yet to lift any major silverware with Arsenal and is yet to sign a new contract.

As the Premier League season prepares to restart after the coronavirus pandemic lockdown, Arsenal are in ninth place in the Premier League ahead of Wednesday's (June 17) trip to Manchester City.

They were in great form before the three-month pause, and Arteta knows that if Arsenal could scramble into the Champions League places it would be a huge boost in convincing Aubameyang to commit.

"I think it's our responsibility to make him feel that this is the right next step in his career," Arteta told a virtual news conference on Monday (June 15) ahead of the restart.

"In order to do that he needs to feel valued, I think he needs to feel that he belongs to us and we want him.

"And then he really needs to believe we can take this club forward in the way we want to do and he's going to be a key player to do that." Spaniard Arteta said the club were in talks with the player's agent and family but that the unusual circumstances had made it a slower process than usual.
