Reports have suggested that Marcelino, who was sacked by Valencia in September, is viewed as a candidate for the position at the Emirates.
According to Superdeporte, Marcelino landed in London on Sunday morning and is 'close to taking up a new project'.
Several reports claim that Arsenal, owing to budget restrictions, will not appoint an elite manager and instead opt for an in-house appointment, with Patrick Vieira and Mikel Arteta favourites for the role.
Marcelino enjoyed a successful time with Valencia, qualifying for the Champions League in successive seasons and winning the Copa del Rey in May. body check tags ::
