Arsenal to hold talks with Thierry Henry over manager's position

Mikel Arteta wants Arsenal star as assistant after talks with Gunners

Wenger said he has not decided whether his next job will be as a manager or at boardroom level, having previously said he will continue to work in football following his Arsenal departure. ESPN's Arsenal correspondent Mattias Karen feels Arsenal need to bring in several key defenders if the club is to challenge for sivlerware.

Mikel Arteta was seen as a wildcard when Arsenal started to look for a replacement for Arsene Wenger but after the original favourites including Max Allegri and Julian Nagelsmann ruled themselves out, Arteta looks to be the front-runner to be the new Arsenal manager.

Nevertheless, perhaps Arteta fits the mould of what they're looking for moving forward, and in truth, it would be a tough challenge for any manager to step in after 22 years of Wenger at Arsenal as there will undoubtedly be a hard transitional period to follow as the new boss implements his own ideas.

The 68-year-old Frenchman has hailed his former captain, who he says has "all the qualities" to manage the Gunners going forward.

Wenger will not be involved in the board's decision over his successor at Arsenal, though.

"He was a leader, has good passion for the game, knows the club and knows what is important at the club".

"I left a lot of experience behind me, people who were with me like Steve Bould who has six years experience, and Jens Lehmann too".

Boro Primorac, a long-term coach and friend of Wenger, was always likely to leave and a number of other members of the backroom staff have also been relieved of their duties.

Wenger insists that he wants to "defend" his "ideas of football", and will make a decision about his future the day before the World Cup starts in Russian Federation this summer. "Because I want my club to continue to do well and continue to play at the top".

"The question is do I still want to coach, to be on the bench, or is it time to take up different functions?"

"With Messi, Barcelona didn't want to lose him of course and they made [the offer] that was needed to keep the player at the club". "So why not? But whoever they choose I will support".

Mattias is ESPN FC's Arsenal correspondent.
