​Hoffenheim director says no way Nagelsmann joins Arsenal

Julian Nagelsmann, the Arsenal target to replace Arsene Wenger, will remain at Hoffenheim.

The German club's director of football Alexander Rosen is adamant Nagelsmann will stay put.

"Julian Nagelsmann will be our coach next season. 100 per cent," Rosen told Sky Sports.

Gunners' chief executive Ivan Gazidis is reportedly planning to hire a head coach who would work along the head of recruitment Sven Mislintat.

Now it appears that former Arsenal player Mikel Arteta is the favourite for the role.

Juventus' Massimiliano Allegri and Leonardo Jardim from Monaco are also preferred options of the Arsenal board.

The north London club are expected to take their time on the decision, but still make it before the World Cup commences.
