Mikel Arteta considers Arsenal job too good to turn down.
Arsenal’s plans for a new manager may not take too long to achieve as Mikel Arteta is reportedly keen to take the job.
The Gunners have been without a permanent manager since they fired Unai Emery last week Friday.
They have played two games under caretaker manager, Freddie Ljungberg, but none of those matches has ended in wins for them.
The Gunners are now keen to get a permanent manager as quickly as they can.
One of their managerial targets is Mikel Arteta who has spent the last three seasons as Pep Guardiola’s assistant at Manchester City.
Arteta was considered for the job before it was handed over to Unai Emery the last time out and the Spaniard is back on their radar.
The Daily Mail claims that Arteta considers the Arsenal job as the right opportunity for him to kickstart his managerial career.
Arteta has won the last two league titles with Manchester City and he is highly regarded at the Etihad with many observers tipping him to take over from Pep.
However, the report claims that Arteta is keen to start his managerial journey and he would gladly accept Arsenal’s offer.
