Arteta a Spanish footballer and former coach played for Arsenal, prior to playing for Barcelona FC but currently assistant coach at Manchester City football club. Arsenal are in talks with Manchester City. According to the BBC, Gunners chief executive Vinai Venkatesham was pictured outside the Spaniard's home after both flew north following City's 3-0 win at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
It looks like Arteta is the clear front runner for the Arsenal job after working alongside Pep Guardiola, but staying a city is of course should be his first option city is a bigger club, wealthier club, more successful and has better players, Pepe is likely to stand down and after the two have managed together it’s likely there are inside talks. Arteta played with Arsenal for all those years it could sway him. A figure for the transfer/position has not been mentioned but it’s obviously over six figures.
