Mikel Arteta is on the verge of being appointed the new manager of Arsenal with the squad already informed of his probably arrival, according to the Metro.
Arsene Wenger brought down the curtain on his 22-year reign with the north London club at the end of the season and the search has been underway to find a replacement for the long-serving French manager.
Although Arsenal had targeted several experienced names – such as Juventus boss Max Allegri and former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique – Arteta has nudged ahead in their thinking.
And now the Daily Mail report that Arsenal have informed the squad that Arteta is ‘90% certain’ to replace Wenger.
The Spaniard is the preferred choice of both Ivan Gazidis and Josh Kroenke, son of owner Stan, and the club are now preparing to fast-track his appointment.
