Meanwhile, the Arsenal board have now stepped up their search for the Frenchman's successor and seemingly has zeroed on former Arsenal player and current assistant coach of Manchester City, Mikel Arteta and Hoffenheim's young manager Julian Nagelsmann.

Mike Arteta looks set to take over from Arsene Wenger as the new Arsenal manager after bookies suspended betting. A few options were discussed but, as Wenger said publicly at the time, "You can not create artificial positions".

'It was important for us because it was the last game of the boss, ' he said. 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".

"It might appeal to him to take another Premier League job and stick it to his old club".

"Of course it is very emotional after 1,235 games for the same club", said Wenger.
