Marwood pushing Arsenal boss Wenger for Man City post

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is a target for Manchester City's owners.

The Daily Star says former Arsenal star Brian Marwood - appointed Man City's football administrator in March - has persuaded owner Sheikh Mansour the Frenchman is the man to turn the club into title challengers and Champions League regulars.

Marwood and Wenger are said to have a "very good relationship" and although the prospects of landing the Frenchman may seem slim, there have been signs Wenger is becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of funds at Arsenal.

That would not be a problem with City, who have spent around £200m boosting Mark Hughes' squad. "The one they really want is Wenger. Marwood is driving this and he has a very good relationship with Wenger."
