Man City battle to keep hold of Arteta as both Arsenal, Everton keen

Manchester City assistant coach Mikel Arteta is a wanted man.

The Mirror says Arsenal face a big battle with Everton to land former player Arteta as their new manager this summer.

The 35-year-old ­assistant coach in Pep Guardiola's successful Manchester City ­management team has made a huge impression on the two Premier League clubs he played for.

Now the Spaniard is being talked of at the ­Emirates and Goodison Park as a potential ­successor to Arsene Wenger at Arsenal and Sam Allardyce at ­Everton.

Wenger himself would back Arteta to ­succeed him, especially if it meant the Frenchman staying on in a consultancy role. However, Everton are also being linked as they rethink Allardyce's position.
