Manchester City assistant coach Mikel Arteta is reportedly wanted by La Liga club Girona as their new manager after Arsenal snubbed.

36-year-old Spaniard was widely touted as the eventual successor to Arsene Wenger, who quit the Emirates in May after 22 years at the helm, however, the former Gunners player missed out to ex-Paris Saint-Germain gaffer Unai Emery.

According to Sport claim that Arteta is a potential candidate to replace Pablo Machin this summer after the 43-year-old coach has been strongly linked with the Sevilla job despite taking the club to 10th in the La Liga last season.

And Arteta is believed to head a list of candidates to replace him, with Pep Guardiola’s assistant manager Domenec Torrent also under consideration.

Girona and City have strong links, with Etihad owners City Football Group holding 44.3 percent stake in the Spanish side.
