  • Arsene Wenger: Mikel Arteta has quality to become Arsenal manager

Without a Premier League title since the 2003/04 season and without any European success, many believed Wenger was taking the club backwards and was being selfish by staying on as manager rather than listening to the fans' demands.

The Spaniard's name was among the initial candidates following the confirmation that Wenger would be leaving the club after 22 years, and he is now said to be the favourite for the job.

Wenger's assistant Steve Bould has also been offered a new role but the former defender hasn't yet given an indication of his future and is understood be weighing up an offer from recently relegated Stoke City.

Former Arsenal midfielder Arteta, who is now a coach at Manchester City, is the overwhelming favourite to succeed Arsene Wenger in the next few weeks, after the club finished the interview process.

Arsenal are "very close" to appointing former captain Mikel Arteta as their new manager, according to reports.

"So that's why I say - yes, Patrick Vieira is ready to manage Arsenal".

The 36-year-old is keen on compatriot Cazorla being a part of his backroom staff in a player-coach capacity should he be named manager of the Gunners.

It remains to be seen who Arsenal will appoint as their new boss but the Gunners are believed to be keen to announce their next manager before the start of the World Cup in Russian Federation next month.

Arteta may have worked under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City over the past two years but the fact is he lacks managerial experience, which is arguably what Arsenal need right now.

A 68-year-old Arsene Wenger headed Arsenal since 1996.

PSG are also interested in tempting Wenger back to his home country with a manager's role. "As I said in my speech on the pitch after the Burnley (home) game, I'm a fan above all".
