Mikel Arteta set for Arsenal talks on Thursday - reports
Arsenal are reportedly holding talks with Mikel Arteta on Thursday as they move ever closer to appointing the Spaniard as Arsene Wenger’s replacement.
Arteta has emerged as the shock candidate to replace his former manager at Emirates Stadium despite his lack of managerial experience.
Arsenal are said to be keen to appoint their new manager before the World Cup starts and have seen other potential candidates fall by the wayside.
But Guardiola has given his blessing for Arteta to leave City, and he is now expected to hold talks with the club he represented as a player between 2011 and 2016.
