Arteta keen on Arsenal job

Manchester City assistant manager Mikel Arteta is keen on taking the Arsenal job, but wants assurances from the owners of the club.

The former captain has emerged as one of the favourites for the vacant job in North London, having close to being appointed to the position to succeed Arsène Wenger 18 months ago, only for the Gunners then to choose Unai Emery because of his greater experience.

City are willing to let the 37 year old go, but would prefer it if he waited until the end of the season, and are not prepared in any case to release him before the two sides meet at the Emirates on Sunday. The Spaniard has been touted as a possible future replacement for Pep Guardiola at the Etihad, but that is in the future, and the chance to manage Arsenal now may be too big an opportunity for Arteta to turn down although he wants “to know what is on offer and guarantees from them”.
