Arteta has 18 months left on his contract with Arsenal and there are now murmurs of the club offering him a new deal soon.


The Spaniard is not keen to explore it for the moment and Arsenal are likely to visit the issue at the end of the season based on his performance.



But it has been claimed that Arteta could also have a situation to choose a different club when his current deal runs out at the Emirates.


Manchester City are keeping a close eye on the Spaniard’s development as a manager at Arsenal.



Pep Guardiola’s contract also runs out at the end of next season and he is not keen to stay on for much longer.


Manchester City will try to keep him for as long as possible but there are claims that the Spaniard will leave in 2023.



The club are keeping tabs on a few managers and Arteta’s work as Guardiola’s assistant at the Etihad was much appreciated by Manchester City.


The club are keen to bring in a manager who was an insider at the club and the City Football Group.


Apart from Arteta, Manchester City are also keeping tabs on Patrick Vieira who had stints at the club’s academy and head coach at New York City FC.
