Martin Keown urges Unai Emery to sign Marco Verratti

Arsene Wenger

Wenger was replaced by former Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery, 46, on Wednesday.

He said on French radio station RMC: "Like in the last few seasons, you have to say the reality is the club has stagnated a little bit".

"I think it's a little bit of a mixed feeling in fact".

Meanwhile, Henrikh Mkhitaryan said he was looking forward to a new approach at Arsenal after the Spaniard's appointment.

Emery's job will be to close this gap, but Arsenal legend Parlour is certain the Spanish coach will never be able to secure the Gunners their first Premier League title since 2004.

Foreign managerial appointments are no longer a rarity in today's Premier League, but the European sports media was confident that Ivan Gazidis, the Chief Executive at Arsenal, was courting Manchester City's assistant coach Mikel Arteta and not Emery.

"But that's life - we have to look forward".

The new Arsenal boss knows Rabiot well, having worked with him in Paris, where the pair won the domestic treble the season before Emery left.

The Arsenal hierarchy made a decision to replace Wenger as manager as they finished sixth in the Premier League in 2017/18, 12 points off the top four and an incredible 57 points behind champions Manchester City.

"Real Madrid I think I turned down two or three times you know. But if the new coach needs me on the wing, there's no problem".

Perez scored nine times in 37 games, unable to prevent his side from avoiding relegation, and had reportedly been in talks with Lazio over a potential transfer. I hope that we can play with two attackers - that would be ideal. Everyone in the club is a professional.
