BBC’s David Ornstein reveals ex-Spartak Moscow man is now in talks over Arsenal move

Arsenal are now on the verge of wrapping up their first major move and the most important decision of the summer transfer window, ahead of the start of next season.

After 22 long years in charge of the team, the Gunners said goodbye to Arsene Wenger just over a week ago in the last game of the 2017/18 campaign against Huddersfield Town.

Wenger’s departure has prompted an immediate search for a replacement who can help bring the club back into the Champions League.

For much of last week, former Gunner Mikel Arteta was deemed as the favourite to be handed the role of Arsenal’s new manager.

However, the Gunners have made a U-turn, with Unai Emery, who managed Spartak Moscow prior to his stints at Sevilla and PSG, the man being considered by the club.

Indeed, according to BBC journalist David Ornstein, Arsenal are set to agree a move for the Spaniard who will be announced as the new manager this week.
