Arsenal Ready To Gamble On Arteta As Wenger Replacement

Mikel Arteta GETTY Mikel Arteta is primed to take over at Arsenal
Eugene Bates | 17 May, 2018, 03:15

The 30-year-old is reportedly a front-runner to succeed Arsene Wenger after he was overlooked by Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich, which opted for Niko Kovac of Eintracht Frankfurt to replace its own veteran coach, Jupp Heynckes.

Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol claims that the Arsenal Executives will also be meeting on Thursday to discuss who will land the job.

Last month, Arsene Wenger revealed that he was to step down as manager at the end of the season and with the Frenchman having officially left his role on Sunday, more changes are being made at the North London outfit.

The Spaniard, 36, fits perfectly into the Gunners' long-term vision of how the club will be run after 22 years of Wenger's management.

Arteta has worked closely with Pep Guardiola as City broke seven long-standing records that lead the Citizens to Premier League glory.

Pep Guardiola, in his turn, noted he would not stand in Arteta's way if Arsenal come calling.

Carzorla, who has is out of contract in the summer, hasn't kicked a ball in anger since a 3-2 win over Swansea City in October 2016 due to injury but it appears Arteta is keen on keeping his former teammate at Arsenal.

Arteta has come out of left-field a little, especially with no prior managerial experience, but in many regards he would be the ideal choice to not only replace Wenger but keep the playing style and culture he cultivated intact.

Allegri has chosen to remain in Turin, whilst Enrique's alleged demands have proved a stumbling block in negotiations.
