The Arsenal hierarchy is in disagreement over who should replace Arsene Wenger next season.

Sky Sports understands Gunners chief Ivan Gazidis is keen on appointing former Gunners midfielder Mikel Arteta.

The Spaniard is currently an assistant coach at newly crowned Premier League champions Manchester City after leaving the north Londoners and retiring from football in 2016.

The Arsenal chief will ultimately recommend a new head coach to owner Stan Kroenke, but is facing in-house competition with head of football relations Raul Sanllehi eyeing Luis Enrique as the man to revive Arsenal – the two have a close understanding having worked together at Barcelona.

Wenger, who will step down from his role at the end of the season is set to depart a year before his two-year contract expires.

The team will be desperate to give the boss a happy send off by triumphing in the Europa League – they meet Atletico Madrid for the first-leg of their semi-final tie on Thursday.

Gooners, would you like to see Arteta replace Wenger? Let us know in the comments…

    Arteta is good choice because, when Man City scored and won against Arsenal this season I saw that he wasn’t celebrating at all.

    We need an experienced, young and qualified coach who has a big cv but the joke of former players must be resisted at all costs, let’s have Luis Enrique period forget Ranieri, Allegri, Anchelotti etc we need someone to move Arsenal fast forward not jokers
