Mikel Arteta close to joining Arsenal as Unai Emery replacement


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta

Mikel Arteta reportedly looks to have left Manchester City to become the new Arsenal manager, according to news breaking from a variety of sources.


Following Unai Emery's sacking late last month, the club had been looking for the perfect suitor and Mikel Arteta has emerged as the best candidate.

The former Arsenal captain came very close to being appointed in the summer of 2018 after Arsene Wenger left but at the last minute Arsenal decided to give the job to Unai Emery instead.

Emery lost his job 19 days ago after he failed to re-establish Arsenal as a top-four side so the club's football executives have decided to give the job to their second choice from 2018.
