Mikel Arteta might have a big problem with his former boss Pep Guardiola after it was disclosed that the Spaniard has set his sights on one of the defenders at his former club.
Arteta was the assistant manager to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City for three years and six months until December 2019 when he made the decision to accept his first managerial job.
He was appointed the new manager at Arsenal around four weeks ago and the Spaniard is set to return to Manchester City for one of their players according to The Sun.

Arsenal and Mikel Arteta are in need of defensive reinforcements and their search has led them to Manchester City center-back John Stones who has won the Premier League title for the Citizens in each of his first two seasons at the club following his £50m transfer from Everton.
He has not been in the best of shapes in recent months as the England international has struggled for both form and fitness.
Arsenal have lost center-back Calum Chambers to a serious injury and he’s not expected back until next season, while young defender Kostantinos Mavropanos has left the club for German club Nurnberg on loan thus paving the way for the Gunners to sign a defender most likely on loan.
