Appointing Arteta is just what Arsenal needs Video

Hoffenheim rule out chances of losing Julian Nagelsmann to Arsenal Arsene Wenger: Mikel Arteta has quality to become Arsenal manager

When Wenger was appointed by Arsenal there were similar reactions from many supporters and media members, but he leaves as the second-most decorated manager in the Premier League era.

The 41-year-old is in charge of the Major League Soccer side, having joined the club in 2016 after a stint with the Manchester City reserve team.

Former Arsenal midfielder Arteta, who is now a coach at Manchester City, is the overwhelming favourite to succeed Arsene Wenger in the next few weeks, after the club finished the interview process.

Patrick Vieira was left disappointed at Arsenal's "token gesture" after being contacted about the vacant managerial position at the club, say Sky sources.

Whereas Manchester United unveiled David Moyes just 24 hours after Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement in 2013, Arsenal have taken nearly a month (and counting).

The 36-year-old is keen on compatriot Cazorla being a part of his backroom staff in a player-coach capacity should he be named manager of the Gunners. Arteta also has received tutelage from a man that many consider the best in the business today by assisting under Guardiola.

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

Juventus boss Max Allegri has pledged his future to the perennial Italian champions while Hoffenheim insist that their coach Julian Nagelsmann is also staying put. "I think all of them could manage Arsenal", he told BTSport.

The former French Gunner has been linked with the vacant position at the Emirates but Vieira, now head coach of MLS side New York City FC, has apparently been left "disappointed" after being contacted by Arsenal. "As I said in my speech on the pitch after the Burnley (home) game, I'm a fan above all".
