Arsene Wenger claims he nearly signed Cristiano Ronaldo

He retired two years ago to join Pep Guardiola's coaching team at Manchester City and helped deliver the Premier League title to the Etihad Stadium this season.

Gazidis wants progressive football at the Emirates to continue under the new boss while embodying the values of Arsenal.

Former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has been priced as the bookies favourite to take over from Arsene Wenger according to Betway.

Recent ventures into the transfer mercato has bolstered Arsenal's midfield and attacking setup, but they are still a far cry away from a complete squad.

Boro Primorac, a long-term coach and friend of Wenger, was always likely to leave and, as the outgoing manager prepares to clear his office later this week, a number of other backroom staff have also been relieved of their duties.

And the 68-year-old was correct in terming his peregrination at the North London club as "a human adventure", for it showcased the entire spectrum of human emotions for Arsenal supporters - from ecstasy to apathy, from vexation to exhilaration. "It's going to be tough to replace Wenger after so many years and success but I think Luis Enrique would do it well there". "We were together so good, all the staff, so if he stays I'll be the happiest guy in the world. I had fantastic human experiences at the club, above the results, it was a human adventure", Arsene Wenger proclaimed after Arsenal's last match of the 2017/18 English Premier League season.

Club legend Patrick Vieira was still hoping he could land the role but Arteta is seemingly the preferred candidate and is now odds-on to land the job, and has been back into 1/2 with Coral. "You need to give the new manager time".
