Mikel Arteta's future as Arsenal head coach is set to be decided within the next five games, according to a report.

Despite lifting the FA Cup at the end of the 2019-20 season, the Spaniard has endured a difficult reign at the helm, guiding his side to successive eighth-placed league finishes, with the latter causing the Gunners to miss out on European football for the first time in 25 years.

Arteta has also overseen a disappointing start to the 2020-21 campaign with the North London club, suffering back-to-back 2-0 defeats against Brentford and Chelsea in their opening two Premier League games.

The 39-year-old is now under increased pressure to turn the club's fortunes around and according to the Daily Telegraph, the Arsenal boss has until the second international break in October to save his job.

Arteta's next match in the dugout is for the League Cup second round clash at home against West Bromwich Albion tonight, before a trip to Premier League champions Manchester City on Saturday.

League encounters against Norwich City and Burnley will then follow in September before they welcome North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur to the Emirates Stadium later that month.

If Arteta is relieved of his duties, then Arsenal will reportedly consider the appointment of former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, who is currently out of work after leaving Inter Milan in May.
