Reports making the round suggest Arsenal could announce a deal for Mikel Arteta after suffering a massive setback in signing Max Allegri.

The Italian manager publicly indicated he will stay at Juventus, likely leaving the way clear for Mikel Arteta to succeed Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

There is still a sense of the Premier League club testing the waters elsewhere as they make one of the most important decisions in their history, but those close to the situation feel circumstances are currently falling so Arteta is the likeliest to be the next coach.

BBC claims the former Arsenal midfielder greatly wants the job, to the point he has already thought up plans for his backroom staff.

Allegri is for his part said to still be tempted by Arsenal, but on Sunday night told media after his latest Serie A title win “if they don’t fire me, I see myself as staying at Juventus next year too.”
