Arteta close to joining Arsenal

Arsenal players have been informed Mikel Arteta is close to agreeing terms over the manager's job.

The Daily Mail says the players have been told that Arteta is 90 per cent certain to replace Arsene Wenger .

The Spaniard, who has been working with Pep Guardiola and Manchester City for the past two seasons, is the preferred candidate of chief executive Ivan Gazidis and influential director Josh Kroenke, son of owner Stan.

Other board members, including head of football relations Raul Sanllehi, had wanted a candidate with a proven track-record.

But Max Allegri, Luis Enrique and Joachim Low appeared to have all dropped out of the race.
