Arsene Wenger believes Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta has the "qualities" required to succeed him at Arsenal.

Arsenal - who finished without a trophy last season and failed to qualify for next term's Champions League - are confident a new manager will be named before the World Cup begins on June 14.
