Arsenal are looking set to appoint Unai Emery as their new manager and successor to Arsene Wenger later this week.

The 46-year-old left his role as boss at French champs PSG at the end of the season, where he won one Ligue 1 title and four domestic cups in two seasons in charge and is expected to succeed Arsene Wenger.

According to BBC sports, the Spaniard emerged as the unanimous choice following a recruitment process in which all candidates were spoken to.

Emery announced last month he would leave French champions PSG when his contract expired at the end of the season. He was replaced by former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel, who had also been linked with the Arsenal job.

Meanwhile, Manchester City assistant manager and former Gunners captain Mikel Arteta was strong favourite to succeed Arsene Wenger.
