EXCLUSIVE: MANCHESTER CITY will NOT stand in Mikel Arteta's way if Arsenal coming looking for a new manager.
The Gunners are on a shocking run of form at present with just six wins in their last 19 Premier League matches.
There have been calls for Unai Emery to be sacked by fans and pundits, and the club's hierarchy are looking at his position.
It is understood the North Londoners have their former player on a shortlist of candidates as a future boss.
PATRICK VIEIRA wants to see Arsenal fans “get behind” Unai Emery.
The Gunners veteran said: “It's true Arsenal are going through a tough spell.
“But I haven't watched all their matches, so I can't talk about their game.
“They have a coach who is qualified and works well. When a club is having a difficult time, it's important to be united.
“I think he has enough experience to get them through this difficult spell. We have to get behind him and give him time to change things.”
GRANIT XHAKA is reportedly seeking a new home in Milan as part of his attempts to earn a January transfer.
AC Milan are linked with the unhappy Gunners outcast but swapping the Emirates for the San Siro would be to step from one crisis club to another.
Sunday's defeat to Juventus left the Rossoneri 14th in Serie A with three defeats in four games.
Nonetheless, Xhaka is said by RSI to be scouting out the Milanese property market.
PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG shot down “bulls***” claims his close ties to AFTV has split opinion among Gunners bosses.
Set up in 2012, the fan channel boasts over 1 million followers and appears to have drummed up a relationship with a few star players.
Most notably, Aubameyang has been filmed greeting one host, Troopz, and is said to have invited him to his personal executive box at the Emirates.
According to The Athletic, this has caused consternation within the Arsenal dressing room as AFTV made a name for themselves with over-the-top criticism of the team and management.
However, one week into his term as Arsenal captain, Aubameyang insisted he talks to who he wants to – and told those with a problem where to go.
DANNY MURPHY says Arsenal would be closer to the top four if Sean Dyche was in charge.
The Gunners are sixth in the Premier League standings after just four wins from their first 12 games.
He told talkSPORT: “If you look at Sean Dyche and Chris Wilder at Sheffield United, they are two English managers who have come up the hard way.
“Would Arsenal be in a better position now in Dyche was in charge? Would they have more points? I think [they would], 100 per cent.”
