Arsenal Ready To Gamble On Arteta As Wenger Replacement

Arsenal Ready To Gamble On Arteta As Wenger Replacement

Mikel Arteta is expected to be unveiled as the new Arsenal manager this month after the club made it clear that Patrick Vieira is not seriously in their thoughts.

The former Everton star will have learned a lot from Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, under whom he has worked as a coach for the past two seasons.

New York City FC manager Vieira held talks with the club, but Sky Sports say he "feels the call was merely a token gesture to one of their former players".

New players may be arriving, and depending on the calibre of the new manager, numerous faces may be world class and considering Arsenal are not short of funds, the new boss would surely like to upgrade on the squad with some big names.

Along with Arteta, Patrick Vieira has been spoken to about the Arsenal post, but the Frenchman has since been left in limbo as he has not received any feedback. "I think all of them could manage Arsenal", Pires said in an interview with BTSport.com.




Carzorla, who has is out of contract in the summer, hasn't kicked a ball in anger since a 3-2 win over Swansea City in October 2016 due to injury but it appears Arteta is keen on keeping his former teammate at Arsenal.

'With Vieira - and this is only my opinion - yes.

"It will be very hard for me [without Arsenal]", Wenger said.

"However, he has a very good profile to replace Arsene Wenger, because he knows football, he knows the Premier League and of course, he knows Arsenal".
