Mikel Arteta now second-favourite for Arsenal job

Man City assistant could be set for Emirates return

Former Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta is now second-favourite to replace Arsene Wenger in charge of the club, according to the latest Coral odds.

Arteta played 149 games for the Gunners before retiring in 2016. He then joined Manchester City as Pep Guardiola’s assistant, where he’s helped them to win the title this season.

The Spaniard’s odds have now surged to 5/1, second only to Luis Enrique (2/1) in the betting.

Arsenal face Atletico Madrid at home in a tough Europa League semi-final on Thursday, before a trip to Manchester United on Sunday.
