Arsenal star Alex Iwobi emotional after Arsene Wenger's last game

Arsene Wenger: Mikel Arteta has quality to become Arsenal manager Arsenal to open talks with Manchester City assistant coach Mikel Arteta on Thursday

Former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique is reportedly interested in succeeding Wenger at the Emirates, but his wage demands are putting Arsenal off.

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.

He spent five years at the Emirates as a player, making 110 appearances in all competitions before retiring in 2016.

Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann, who emerged as a frontrunner for the post this week, seems to staying put also after the club's director of football released a statement confirming the 30-year-old would be going nowhere.

That leaves Arteta in the clear as it has seemed for some time that Arsenal wanted a younger coach with fresh ideas to reinvigorate their squad after a disappointing past two seasons under Wenger.

Arsenal is already weighing options to gamble on appointing Mikel Arteta as the club's new manager following the departure of Arsene Wenger.

Arsene Wenger: Mikel Arteta has quality to become Arsenal manager

In many ways he ticks all of the right boxes.

Vieira is now being linked with the manager job at Ligue 1 club Nantes.

It is now seen as highly unlikely that Arsenal would be able to come to an agreement with Juventus' Max Allegri and in the meantime talks with Arteta and his representatives have reached the point where he has named potential staff and the financial package required.

Patrick Vieira is "ready to manage Arsenal", according to his former Gunners team-mate Robert Pires.

Massimiliano Allegri has also ruled himself out of the running, while Germany boss Joachim Low has signed a new contract which will keep him in charge of the national team until 2022.
