Arsenal ‘held talks’ with Mendes over Nuno replacing Arteta

Arsenal reportedly held talks with Jorge Mendes over Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo replacing Mikel Arteta before the club’s recent upturn in form.

Arteta was fighting for his job in the lead up to Christmas as Arsenal lost six of their eight games in all competitions.

Four wins in a row has ended any speculation over his future, but The Sun claims super agent Mendes held talks with the Arsenal hierarchy over the possibility of his client Nuno taking over at the Emirates.

The Portuguese had only signed a new three-year deal a few months earlier, but the report claims Mendes is ‘actively searching’ for a new club for the 46-year-old, who is thought to be keen on remaining in England if possible.

It is thought Nuno’s next club would need to be playing European football, but the report adds that the former goalkeeper remains happy at Molineux.

Wolves themselves are enduring one of the worst spells of Nuno’s reign and sit 14th having not won any of their last five Premier League games, losing three of them.
