Arsenal are set for significant changes this summer and an intriguing move could be on the cards to succeed Arsene Wenger as manager, following the announcement that the long-serving boss would step down after 22 years at the helm.

A host of experienced names have been linked with the soon to be vacant position at the Emirates Stadium but Arsenal could be eyeing a younger candidate to work in a three-man structure in north London, according to a report.

Sky Sports claim Liverpool’s assistant manager Zeljko Buvac could be taking charge of the Gunners, working directly alongside head of recruitment Sven Mislintat and head of football operations Raul Sanellhi.

“Sky Sports News understands Arsenal wish to appoint Wenger’s successor as soon as possible after the season closes – with Mislintat championing Buvac, his former colleague at Borussia Dortmund.”

“Mislintat believes a three-man structure incorporating himself, Buvac as head coach and Raul Sanllehi, Arsenal’s head of football relations, is the best way to develop a successful long-term strategy at the Emirates.”
