Arteta closing on Arsenal deal

"Arsenal really are a football club that aren't looking forward to offload managers".

Arsene Wenger was at the North London club since 1996 and won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.

The 68-year-old who became Europe's longest-serving manager during his time at Arsenal has admitted to RMC Sport that while he is obviously not prepared to to consider another long term project, he will target a position at a club that are ready to challenge right away.

They're listed below in order of the points attained from Wenger's first game at the start of October 1996, so it probably gets trickier as you go down the list to the one-season sides towards the bottom.

A spokesperson for Betway said: "After heightened betting activity on Tuesday morning, running in line with reports that a deal is close, we've been forced to suspend betting on Mikel Arteta taking over as the Arsenal manager".

Josh Kroenke, son of majority Arsenal shareholder Stan, has been a growing influence at the club this season.

"I almost signed Ronaldo and I think that would have changed the history of Arsenal Football Club".

Wenger has reportedly already received a number of job offers but would not talk to any potential suitors until after he has completely put his tasks at Arsenal behind him.

It also remains unclear what Wenger's next move will be. "We were together so good, all the staff, so if he stays I'll be the happiest guy in the world".

Rams general manager Les Snead, speaking to the Orange County Register newspaper said at the time of McVay's appointment: "The nice thing with Stan is [he] is very innovative".
