Mikel Arteta has reportedly emerged as the leading candidate to become Arsenal's new manager on a long-term basis, although the Spaniard might have to pass a strict interview process before being offered the job.
Freddie Ljungberg is currently in charge of first-team affairs at the Emirates Stadium following the dismissal of Unai Emery, and the Swede will lead the side into Monday's clash with West Ham United.
However, according to The Telegraph, the former midfielder might have to pass an 'Apprentice-style interview process', meaning that a number of candidates will be interviewed before a decision is made.
The Gunners have only won four of their 15 league matches this season and are currently on a run of nine games without a victory in all competitions.
Arteta ended his playing career at Arsenal, turning out for the London club between 2011 and 2016.body check tags ::
