have undergone major changes so far this year, with the replacing long-serving boss Arsene with former Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery.

Emery’s arrival has since led to an overhaul amongst the coaching staff and widespread changes amongst the squad, including the departures of Jack and Santi Cazorla, with further changes potentially lying ahead.

The Financial Times reports that Russian billionaire  is considering selling his 30% stake in the club, despite only turning down a reported offer of £525m for his shares in October.
