Arsenal are seeking a new manager to lead the club forward after Arsene Wenger’s departure following 22 years of service to the Gunners and it seems the race for the job continues to rumble on.
While it’s widely been reported that former Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta will land the role at the Emirates Stadium, The Daily Mail state recently departed Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery has emerged as a late candidate.
Emery guided PSG to the Ligue 1 title this season but left at the end of the campaign, falling short of the club’s goals in the Champions League, and has been replaced in the French capital by former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel.
The emergence of the Spaniard in the market has alerted the Arsenal hierarchy to his availability after years of success in European football, which includes guiding Sevilla to three consecutive Europa League triumphs.
It’s claimed there is even a scenario that could see Arteta work alongside Emery, potentially as an assistant before taking charge of the club fully in the future.
