Wenger’s 22-year Arsenal tenure will end this summer

The 41-year-old has been name-checked among a host of candidates to step into Wenger's shoes after the long-serving Gunners boss announced he would step down at the end of the season on Friday.

And speaking to BT Sport afterwards, Rodgers dismissed talk of leaving for Arsenal while reaffirming his loyalty to the Hoops. "But, when I last spoke to him, and whenever you address Arsene Wenger, it is football, it is in his blood. I think it is an intriguing decision (to appoint Wenger's successor) and one I am looking forward to the board making with real excitement".

Meanwhile Wright's former team-mate Martin Keown, who won three titles under Wenger, said leaving Arsenal would feel like a "bereavement" for the manager.

Extracted from The Wenger Revolution: Twenty Years of Arsenal by Amy Lawrence and official Arsenal photographer, Stuart MacFarlane. "I think all the names will get mentioned and all of them are ready".

Arsene Wenger is expected to have a decent sized squad available to play against West Ham.

But the Northern Irishman says he is happy on and off the field in Glasgow.

In terms of the first team, Iwobi may be one of those with reason to be concerned.

"That is how we became The Invincibles". That comes after he said in December that he was "not chasing a job in Europe" after being approached by French club Saint-Etienne. His side does have a concerning injury list, and this could impact their chances against Arsenal. Wenger has won three FA Cups recently but you're not following a man who has been dominating the Premier League for the last 15 years.

"It's sad because he is a historical football legend, I always said he is a gentleman and a football master, he taught me a lot about respect and to be professional".

And therein lies the fun and the contradiction of Arsène Wenger. In this season's Premier League, Arsenal have lost touch with their peers in English football's top six. Could it have been that simple all along? So of course it has become my identity.

Mesut Ozil has recently shown mixed bag form since signing the new deal.

"They want to get back towards Champion League football, and when Arsene leaves they will look to move in a different direction, I'm sure".

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has insisted Arsene Wenger must have been sacked as he cannot believe his old boss would have walked away from his post.

In January, Mesut Ozil signed a new contract worth £350,000 ($490,000) a week and strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette cost a combined transfer outlay of around £100 million. To all the Arsenal lovers, take care of the values of the club.

"This is a huge club with big demands and I want to help the club grow and develop".
