Mikel Arteta admits he cares for Arsene Wenger to return to Arsenal and be “closer” to the squad.

Wenger, who left Arsenal in May 2018, has not returned to the Emirates Stadium or the club’s training ground since leaving.

“I chose to keep a total distance. It doesn’t mean emotionally, but physically, ”Wenger told BBC Sport earlier this week.

“It’s important that people don’t see you as a shadow. It may seem like you’re always trying to sway things and go your way.

“I felt the best thing to do was cut it.

However, Arteta has indicated that he would be happy for Wenger to be given a role at Arsenal after his former manager spent 22 years at the club.

“I would love to see him around us again,” Arteta said.

“He was a huge character for me, he’s someone I can still learn a lot from.

“I would like to have it closer to us, obviously the environment does not allow us to do it.

But I think he is a figure that must be very present in what we do at the football club because he is, in my opinion, the one who had the vision and helped this club to evolve and to help this club to be what he is today. ‘
