Mikel Arteta Amatriain (born 26 March 1982) is a Spanish professional football coach and former player. He is currently the head coach at Premier League club Arsenal.

Born in San Sebastián, Arteta played as both an attacking and defensive midfielder, operating chiefly as a playmaker. He was a youth player at Barcelona, but never featured for the first team, instead making his senior career debut while on loan at Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain in 2001. He subsequently signed for Scottish club Rangers, where he won the domestic double of the Scottish Premier League and Scottish League Cup in his debut season. Following a brief stint with Real Sociedad, Arteta joined Everton on loan in 2005; he then signed permanently, and played for Everton until moving to Arsenal in 2011. With the club, he won two FA Cups, and served as team captain from 2014 until his retirement in 2016.

Arteta represented Spain at several youth levels, but never played for the senior national team. After retiring, Arteta transitioned into coaching, being appointed as an assistant coach at Manchester City in 2016. In 2019, he returned to Arsenal as head coach.
