Wenger took charge of his final game as Arsenal boss at Huddersfield on Sunday, as he walked away from the club after nearly 22 years at the helm and the efforts to replace him are now gathering pace.

Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta is reportedly a front-runner, with former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and Vieira - head coach of New York City - among the other names to have been mentioned.

In the final months of his playing career two years ago, as he faced up to a losing battle with the calf and ankle injuries that had curtailed his final two seasons with Arsenal, Mikel Arteta found himself in demand.

Arsenal's £60 million January signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed that he expected Arsene Wenger to be in charge at the Emirates for many years when he signed for the club.

We have lost 50 managers, 11 in the Premier League. "We talked a lot already and we also wrote in a book for him". You can't come out and the next morning say I go somewhere else.


That reciprocation of the relationship at Huddersfield was a touching moment, the Frenchman quipped afterwards: "I should have announced every week that I was retiring, people have been so nice with me since I said that!"

"When you know the history of our club, for me it had a special meaning".

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.

The football that Arsenal played over the years under Wenger was superb, and Everton fans will surely be open to the idea of the Frenchman replacing Allardyce at Goodison Park. When asked in a Q&A with Arsenal fans to name the one player he wished he had signed for the club the legendary Frenchman replied: "I almost signed Ronaldo and I think that would have changed the history of Arsenal Football Club". "I want the best for my friends and he is a friend of mine". "It will be hard to adjust of course but I will have to deal with that. It was a good day for everyone with Huddersfield staying up too", said Wenger.
