Arsenal are planning to hold talks with Mikel Arteta on Thursday over becoming the club’s next manager.

Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol claims that the Arsenal Executives will also be meeting on Thursday to discuss who will land the job.

Arteta has been heavily touted with landing the role at Arsenal since it was announced that Arsene Wenger would be leaving the club.

It was revealed earlier this month that Wenger would be stepping down at the end of the season, after 22 years at the club.

Despite a number of high profile managers being linked with the job, it appears as though Arteta is their first choice – despite having no previous senior experience in charge of a team.

He has been a part of Pep Guardiola’s backroom team at Manchester City for the past two seasons, including their record-breaking title success this season.
