The Gunners’ board have draw down a list of two manager who could be checked for the Arsene Wenger job next season.

Arsenal are still in the market surveying for a new manager next season following Wenger immediate departure at the end of the season.

Gunners legend Mikel Arteta is the bookies’ favourite for the job despite having no previous managerial experience.

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has seen his odds drift in the last 24 hours after he announced he would be staying with the Serie A side.

Sky Sports reporter Aidan Magee claims former Gunner midfielder Arteta and Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann are the two preferred choices for Arsenal at the moment.

And he says they want to make an announcement on Wenger’s replacement before the World Cup starts next month.

“As things stand, Sky sources are telling us that the two leading candidates at the moment for that Arsenal job are Mikel Arteta, their former player and currently at Manchester City, and Julian Nagelsmann,” Magee said.

“This is after Massimiliano Allegri said he would be staying at Juventus unless he got the sack.

“As things stand we understand Arsenal have not made an official approach to either of their former players Patrick Vieira or Thierry Henry.

“Luis Enrique meanwhile is interested in the job but his wage demands are currently putting Arsenal off.

“The interview process is expected to start this week.

“They want someone in place before the World Cup starts on June 14.”
