With the club having now interviewed all of the main candidates, Arteta has emerged as the firm favourite to succeed Wenger in the past few days.

"He is doing very well with New York City, and he told me the job is very hard and difficult".

Arteta who joined Arsenal from Everton spent five years in the Emirates Stadium before retiring in 2016.

After overseeing his last game on Sunday, Arsene Wenger has now left the cub and there are indications that former captain of the Gunners, Mikel Arteta is set to take over the reins from him.

Arteta is reportedly fully aware of Arsenal's interest, and will accept the opportunity if the club offers it to him. Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has become increasingly convinced that the Spaniard, now Pep Guardiola's assistant coach at Manchester City, is the right man for the job.

Therefore, all things considered, Pires think Vieira would be the flawless man to lead the Gunners into the next phase, more than any other potential candidate.

The 36-year-old is keen on compatriot Cazorla being a part of his backroom staff in a player-coach capacity should he be named manager of the Gunners.

Colin Lewin, head of the club's medical department, has been at the club a year longer than Wenger, but will also be departing - as well as coaches Neil Banfield, Gerry Peyton and Tony Colbert, with Paul Johnson leaving his post as equipment manager.

Max Allegri seemingly ruled himself out at the weekend by revealing he plans to stay at Juventus, which made Julian Nagelsmann the most serious rival to Arteta.

The 68-year-old saw out his Arsenal career against Huddersfield with a 1-0 win, ending his reign after 1,235 games and being celebrated as Arsenal's greatest ever manager.
