Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta is reportedly considering coaching offers from the Gunners, Manchester City and Tottenham.

Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has told the Daily Mail that he has three offers to move into coaching this summer - with Manchester City and Tottenham believed to be rivalling for the Gunners for his services.

The 34-year-old decided to hang up his boots on Sunday, retiring after Arsenal beat Aston Villa 4-0 on the final day of the season - with Arteta playing a huge role in the final goal, as his shot cannoned back off the crossbar and off Villa goalkeeper Mark Bunn for an own goal.

Spaniard Arteta may have wanted to claim it, but he ends his career with 16 goals Arsenal goals to his name already, and a host of honours spanning spells with Paris Saint-Germain, Rangers and Arsenal.

Also a hero at Everton, Arteta has made more than 350 Premier League appearances, and will now look to move into coaching this summer.

The Daily Mail report that Arsenal want to keep Arteta at the Emirates Stadium as a coach under Arsene Wenger, but Premier League rivals Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have also made offers to Arteta.

City's incoming boss Pep Guardiola knows Arteta from their time together at Barcelona, whilst Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino played alongside Arteta at Paris Saint-Germain, meaning they could complete a shock North London reunion this summer.

Arteta did reveal to the Daily Mail that he has three offers on the table, and whilst he wouldn't name the clubs involved, City and Spurs are believed to be in the mix - and Arteta says he will take some time to emotionally deal with retirement before making a decision.

"I don't want to say clubs but I have three very different options and I am very proud because it is not common," said Arteta. "I have so much respect for this club, what they think about me and what they have shown in the last few weeks that they want to do with me, that I cannot talk about any other things."

"It is always difficult to leave first. Monday is going to be a very difficult day I believe because after all those emotions, you realise that probably you hang up your boots and stop something I have been doing for the last 17 or 18 years in a professional way. I have to digest and consume all those emotions first," he added.

Who do you think Arteta will coach with next season?
