Arsenal set to appoint Unai Emery as successor to Arsene Wenger

Unai Emery: Set for Arsenal according to reports

Arsenal are set to appoint Unai Emery as their new manager, according to reports.

Manchester City assistant Mikel Arteta was one of the favourites to replace Arsene Wenger, but former Paris St Germain boss Emery is expected to be announced in the role later this week.

The 46-year-old left PSG when his contract expired at the end of the season after winning one Ligue 1 title and four domestic cups during his two-season spell in charge.

Emery also led Sevilla to three consecutive Europa League titles from 2014.

Former Arsenal forward Ian Wright, speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, said: "It's like they're at the sushi shop.

"You know the stuff that's just going past? Yeah, I'll have that. I'll take that. I'll leave them ones. No, I'll take that one now.

"What's going on at Arsenal, where's Unai Emery come from? I can't get it out of my head.

"You'd have thought that by now they would have known exactly what's going on. Unai Emery's now the favourite, he's going to be the manager?

"Good luck to him if he comes in and gets it. I'll back him. The fact is you just want people upstairs to be decisive with what they're doing. I think they've had the time. This is the problem I've got."

Santi says goodbye

Arsenal have announced that Santi Cazorla is leaving the club after coming to the end of his contract.

The 33-year-old made 180 appearances for the Gunners since signing from Malaga in 2012, scoring 29 goals in all competitions.

Former Spain international Cazorla has not appeared for Arsenal since sustaining an Achilles injury in October 2016.

Ivan Gazidis, Arsenal's chief executive, said on the club's website: "Santi is always one of my favourite players to watch.

"His natural ability with both feet, his speed of thought and movement were central to our best performances in recent years.

"He plays with a joy and freedom which is very rare. We wish him well for the future and thank him for his important contribution to our club."
