Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reportedly eyeing up Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta as his replacement, with the former-Gunner impressing as a coach under Pep Guardiola for the league leaders. The move would likely see Wenger move into a role in the boardroom with his contract cut short.
Arsenal were held to a gripping 2-2 draw in their last Premier League game. The stalemate saw no end of goals, moments of magic and controversy, and it was a fantastic advert for the Premier League. The draw means that Arsenal are now sitting in sixth with 39 points, two short of Tottenham in fifth, and five behind Liverpool in the final Champions League spot.
Their draw was yet another example of the side dropping points. It did also display that while they are very good going forward, they can be so weak at the back, with their defence all too often letting the London side down.
Perhaps it is time for the side to have some new ideas injected into it, and Arsene Wenger is reportedly already looking at his replacement. According to the Sunday Mirror, the manager is looking to hand-pick Mikel Arteta as his replacement, with the Wenger’s current contract reportedly containing a clause that says both parties can review the situation once the season has ended.
Wenger would reportedly move into a role in the boardroom with the side, which would bring an end to his incredible spell as the manager of the side, with Arteta brought in after impressing as a coach under Pep Guardiola.
