Wenger: Arteta Has All The Qualities To Become Arsenal Manager

Spaniard Arteta, 36, played 150 games for Arsenal and is now a coach at champions Manchester City.

The reports that Mikel Arteta is now firmly in line to be named as the new Arsenal manager has provided the latest big piece of news to divide the Gunners' fanbase and draw widespread commentary from pundits.

For the most part, however, the sound of caution has been overridden with excitement and a welcoming tone from Gunners fans in anticipation of the potential new arrival, with some even jumping to comparisons with legendary counterparts in Soyuncu's central defensive position.

Former Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has made a fantastic start to his Arsenal career, and his contract details at the London club have now reportedly been revealed. Ronaldo went on to inspire United to eight major trophies, including three Premier League titles and the 2007-08 Champions League, before joining Real Madrid for a then world-record fee of close to £80m. "That would certainly have changed a little bit the history of my stay here as well". The 32-year-old guided the Miners to second in the Bundesliga this term, this coming 12 months after navigating Erzgebirge Aue from bottom to 14th in 2.

It's a risk, of course, to appoint someone so young, yet Arteta's a manager the club would throw their weight behind. Arteta is just 36 years old, and if the board's assessment is right and he proves to be a brilliant manager, it could be another 22 years before they have to worry about hiring a new manager again.

Arteta appears to have emerged as the frontrunner for the Emirates hot seat ahead of the more experienced candidates also rumoured to be in the running for the job.

It is also claimed the new Arsenal boss, whoever that may be - Arteta or otherwise, will only have £50 million to spend in this summers transfer window.

Arteta is keen to take up the role and Man City boss Guardiola has insisted he will not stand in his way.

Anger, intrigue, betrayal - so far, the race to replace Arsene Wenger has all the hallmarks of a good, old-fashioned football saga.

It's certainly become a frustration for Arsenal fans, not to mention the players, who have grown exhausted of waiting according to goalkeeper David Ospina.
