Arsenal set to announce Emery as new manager

Arsenal are set to appoint Unai Emery as Arsene Wenger’s replacement as their new manager, BBC Sport have confirmed.

The former-Paris Saint-Germain manager had seen his odds cut drastically by the bookmakers earlier this week.

Emery left PSG earlier this month after winning one French Ligue 1 title and four domestic cups during two seasons in the French capital.

The 46-year-old previously guided Sevilla to three successive UEFA Europa League titles between 2014-16.

Former-Arsenal player and current Manchester City assistant manager, Mikel Arteta, had been the strong favourite to succeed Arsene Wenger over the past couple of weeks.

The BBC are expecting an announcement from Arsenal later this week.

Unai Emery was replaced by Thomas Tuchel at the helm of Paris Saint-Germain.

Arsene Wenger left the Gunners at the end of this past season following 22 years in charge of the North London club where he guided them to three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.
