Sky Sports: Former Prem star is holding talks over controversial Arsenal switch this week

Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol has revealed the latest move which the Gunners have made in their quest for a new manager this summer.

Arsenal said goodbye to Arsene Wenger on Sunday with a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town, courtesy of a goal from January signing Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang in the first half.

After bringing what was a disappointing 2017/18 season to an end, the next task for the Arsenal board is to appoint a new manager who could secure a return to the Champions League for the club.

The Gunners have been rumoured to be considering a host of names but Manchester City’s Mikel Arteta appears to be the man leading the race to replace Arsene Wenger.

The former Premier League star, who left the Emirates stadium in 2016 after retiring from his playing career, is indeed expected to hold talks over a controversial return to Arsenal as manager, according to Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol.
