Arsenal players dead against hiring 'arrogant' Mikel Arteta

Arsenal players are against their plans to move for Manchester City assistant coach Mikel Arteta.

The Sun says Arteta has been lined up as a potential replacement for under-fire Gunners chief Arsene Wenger.

Wenger is expected to leave the Emirates this summer after 22-years following a disastrous campaign.

But some members of the Arsenal dressing room do not want Arteta to come in and take over.

The 35-year-old is understood to not be popular in North London after five-years at the club.

He is accused of being arrogant and thought highly of himself during his Gunners spell.
