With Arsène Wenger emerging from the Emirates at the end of the season, there are several candidates who will be drawn to the succession of the Frenchman in the Arsenal command. And there is an amazing name that may be gaining strength behind the scenes.
We are talking about Mikel Arteta, a former London player and current assistant manager of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
Sky Sports said the 36-year-old Spaniard is seen by Arsenal president Ivan Gazidis as a future solution for coaching.
Arteta represented the Gunners between 2011 and 2016, the year in which he hung his boots. He then started a new career in the service of the new English champion.
