Arsenal chiefs spotted leaving his house hours after Man City defeat

Arsenal chiefs held talks with Pep Guardiola assistant Mikel Arteta at his house just hours after the Gunners' 3-0 defeat to Man City on Sunday, December 15.

A Kevin De Bruyne double and Raheem Sterling goal sunk Arsenal at the Emirates as the north London side's poor form continued.

After the Sunday defeat, interim boss, Freddie Ljungberg, asked Arsenal board to fast-tract the process of appointing a permanent replacement for Unai Emery who was sacked late November.

And it now appears Arsenal are doing just that after the club’s chief executive Vinai Venkatesham and chief contract negotiator, Huss Fahmy, being spotted leaving Arteta’s house in the early hours of Monday morning, December 16.

It is believed Arteta, who spent five years at the Emirates as a player is now Gunners' top choice candidate to succeed Emery.

Metro UK reports the club could name the Spaniard new boss in the next 48 hours, ending days of speculation.
