Arsenal make contact with club legend amid links with management role


Although Arsenal are without a manager, Gianluca Di Marzio reports that the club's transfer department are pressing ahead with summer plans regardless of who the new manager is.

Boro Primorac, Wenger's close ally throughout his management career, is also on the way out as the new era at the North London club continues at a pace.

The sextet have been cleared out in preparation for Wenger's successor being appointed, who is likely to want to bring in his own coaching team.

The Frenchman's near 22-year reign in charge of the club is over, with Arsenal yet to confirm who will be taking charge for the 2018-19 season.

Steve Bould could follow Arsene Wenger out of Arsenal this week.

That said, we know that you - the brainy and attractive visitor to - have a superb knowledge of all things football.

Josh Kroenke, son of majority Arsenal shareholder Stan, has been a growing influence at the club this season.

We made some applause.

Once the action was under way, a plane flew over the ground carrying the banner "Merci Arsene - we'll miss you".

"I'm not ready for that at the moment", he said.

He won three Premier League titles, including the famous 2003-04 unbeaten season, and seven FA Cups, while revolutionising English football with his ground-breaking use of sports science and scouting of players from previously untapped markets like Africa.

Previous favourite, Juventus manager Max Allegri had been sounded out it is believed he is now looking to stay at La Vecchia Signora, unless he has a sudden change of heart. "It will be hard to adjust of course but I will have to deal with that. It is good for the future and I am sure next season will be a good season". "I will remain an Arsenal fan above everything else".
