Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann has emerged as a front-runner for the Arsenal job this summer, according to Sky Sports.
The Gunners are on the lookout for a new, permanent manager as Arsene Wenger leaves the club following a 22-year spell at the helm.
A number of candidates have been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium in recent weeks, but it seems as though the Gunners are ramping up their pursuit of Nagelsmann.
It’s claimed by Sky Sports that Arsenal’s top brass have narrowed their search for a new boss down to two options, including Nagelsmann and Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta.
Nagelsmann led Hoffenheim to a 3rd-place finish in the Bundesliga this season after a phenomenal breakthrough campaign last time out. It seems his impressive performance, at the age of just 30, has piqued Arsenal’s interest.
However, Arteta, who is a member of Pep Guardiola’s backroom staff at City, is also seemingly a strong contender to take the reins from Wenger this summer.
