Arsenal and Mikel Arteta have rejected a chance to sign former Tottenham midfielder Christian Ericksen in the coming transfer window.
Arteta is snubbing the Inter Milan creative midfielder at a time when they cannot find their scoring form in all league this season.
Inter Milan signed Ericksen from Tottenham in January this year for 17 million pounds but has been sidelined by Conte this season.

He has managed to make only seven appearances, three of them he came in as a substitute and has scored not even a single goal.
Back in England, Ericksen netted 69 goals and provide a total of 89 assists from 305 appearances he made for Tottenham.
Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain have both shown interest in signing the 28-year-old former Ajax man. Manchester United are also tipped to be linked to him but they are not interested in signing anyone in his position.
Arsenal who are without Mesut Ozil this season, lack creative midfielder who will provide enough assist for Aubameyang and Lacazette to turn around results in the Premier League.
Arsenal are currently stuck in position 12 with 13 points from 9 games played. They even lacked creativity to beat Leeds last Sunday.
