Mikel Arteta will be the new Arsenal boss. It is only a matter of time before his appointment as head coach is confirmed.
Fans are waiting for the official announcement from the club and barring a late derailment, the deal to take him from Manchester City will be concluded before the Gunners take on Everton ahead of Christmas.
Arteta’s first game is expected be against another one of his former clubs although the Spaniard will watch on from the stands with Freddie Ljungberg in charge for one more match.
Once he is fully installed at London Colney, Arteta will be charged with changing the club’s fortunes in the short-term, before a long-term plan is put in place.
