Arsenal set to appoint Unai Emery as new manager

"Then suddenly, out of nowhere, Unai Emery (who only officially left management PSG yesterday at the end of the French season) flew into London, was obviously approached in the last few days".

Mikel Arteta appeared set to step into the hot seat at the Emirates Stadium, but in a stunning Eleventh Hour move it appears former PSG and Sevilla boss Unai Emery will now take control.

Emery left his role as Paris-Saint Germain manager at the end of the season despite winning five trophies in two years, Thomas Tuchel taking his position at the French club. Thierry Henry has also been interviewed for the job.

According to David Ornstein of BBC Sport, "an announcement and news conference are expected later this week" to confirm Emery as Wenger's successor.

The 46-year-old is best known for his work at Sevilla, where he guided the Spanish giants to three Europa League titles in four years.

And how hard it would be, even though she felt like one of my daughters, she wasn't my daughter. "She is in heaven", Hart said. Christian Riley Garcia was a student at Santa Fe High School. "When we went to work, she went to work", Jason Cogburn said.

However, while he is described as "not completely fluent" in English, that is not described as a problem, and his appointment is expected to be ratified shortly.

A sixth-placed finish in the Premier League, the Frenchman's worst-ever return, means the Gunners have failed to qualify for the Champions League for a second straight season.

The recruitment process was led by Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis, head of football relations Raul Sanllehi and head of recruitment Sven Mislintat - though the final decision would be down to majority shareholder and owner Stan Kroenke.

Emery won five trophies in Paris but the French club were humiliated when Barcelona turned round a 4-0 aggregate score to knock PSG out of the Champions League previous year. If we do see a difference in intensity, drive and consistency everybody will get onside and that's all Arsenal fans want to see.
