Arsenal ready to appoint Man City assistant coach Mikel Arteta

Arsenal are ready to appoint Manchester City assistant coach Mikel Arteta as manager.

The Mirror says City assistant and former Gunners captain Arteta has become the overwhelming favourite after the club finished the interview process.

The 36-year-old Spaniard fits the criteria of being the young head coach they are looking for in the wake of Arsene Wenger's almost 22 years at the helm.

Juventus boss Max Allegri has pledged his future to the perennial Italian champions while Hoffenheim insist that their coach Julian Nagelsmann is also staying put.

The Gunners previously insisting they want to make an appointment before the start of the World Cup in mid-June.

However, former midfielder Arteta has long been in their sights and now could get unveiled quicker than had been anticipated.
