Arsenal earmark Spaniard as their number one choice for new manager

Arsene Wenger Arsenal

The former midfielder is now the head coach at New York City FC and he has been tipped for a big future in management.

The veteran Frenchman is ending a 22-year stay at Arsenal but he has yet to confirm his next move, while former player Mikel Arteta is reportedly the front-runner to succeed him at Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal will be looking to appoint a manager capable of leading the Gunners to a Premier League title challenge, with the Gunners having failed to challenge for the title in recent seasons.

Ever since Arsène Wenger announced his "decision" to step down as Arsenal's manager, the press have been trying to find out two things: who will replace him and where will the 68-year-old go next. Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has become increasingly convinced that the Spaniard, now Pep Guardiola's assistant coach at Manchester City, is the right man for the job.

Also out of the running is Hoffenheim's highly-rated young boss Julian Nagelsmann.

According to the UK Independent, Arteta and his representatives have held advanced negotiations with the Gunners and are at a stage where backroom staff and financial packages are being discussed.

The former midfielder is said to have been "left disappointed after speaking with the club and feels the call was merely a token gesture to one of their former players".

The Daily Telegraph says that whoever the new manager is he will have no say in the acquisition of Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu, identified by the club's head of recruitment Sven Mislintat as a priority buy this summer.
