Arsenal still to agree compensation with Man City for Arteta – Times


Arsenal struggling

Unai Emery was sacked by Arsenal at the back end of November after a dismal start to the 2019/20 campaign.

Former Arsenal star Freddie Ljungberg has been the man tasked with steadying the ship since Emery’s departure.

But Ljungberg hasn’t enjoyed the most prolific time in the Arsenal dugout.

In total, Ljungberg has taken charge of five Arsenal fixtures across all competitions.

In that time the Gunners have amassed just one victory and that win came against a very lackluster West Ham side.

The North London outfit are also sat 10th in the Premier League with a top-four finish looking increasingly unlikely this term.

Mikel Arteta to Arsenal?

As a result, the Arsenal faithful are probably keen to have a permanent boss appointed as soon as possible.

The man who looks set to take the reins at Arsenal is one of their former players, Mikel Arteta.

Arteta is currently one of Pep Guardiola’s assistants at Manchester City. And the Gunners will probably be hoping Arteta has picked up one or two things from the decorated City boss.

It was reported earlier this week that the Arteta had held a meeting with Arsenal to discuss the managerial vacancy.

The Evening Standard then provided a fresh update on the situation on Wednesday, stating it would now take a drastic U-turn for Arteta not be appointed to succeed Unai Emery.

But The Times have reported that while it is understood Arteta has agreed to take the position, Arsenal are still to agree compensation with Manchester City for the Spaniard.
