Emery set to succeed Wenger as Arsenal boss

Emery set to succeed Wenger as Arsenal boss

"Of course he knows very well the Spainish league and he might find some interesting alternative players - he did so a year ago with [Yuri] Berchiche, the left-back at Real Sociedad who came to Paris Saint-Germain - but he was just a sub".

His success at Sevilla, where he won the Europa League three years running before his move to France, has always been noticed by the Emirates hierarchy.

Emery will get Arsenal more organised than they have been.

However, according to the United Kingdom press, the Spaniard's interest in the position has cooled, and compatriot Emery's appointment is expected to be finalised this week.

Emery may look to work with players he has managed previously, and one player who fits the bill for Arsenal fans is Sevilla midfielder Steven N'Zonzi.

First things first, Emery should convince Nzonzi to join Arsenal.

He will know what to expect under Sven Mislintat and in many ways that will suit him because it enables him to focus on his passion - what happens on the pitch.

The 46-year-old is set to be officially announced as Arsene Wenger's successor after impressing Arsenal chiefs in an interview.

Of course, Emery was the man in charge when PSG were beaten 6-1 by Barcelona at the Nou Camp previous year to lose that remarkable Champions League last-16 tie.

However, PSG have chose to replace him with Thomas Tuchel, and Emery will now be heading for his first shot at Premier League management - and he will be looking for new signings.

His first game at PSG was the 2016 Trophee des Champions - the French Community Shield - against Lyon and they won 4-1. At PSG he won the domestic trophies, it can be taken for granted, but the pressure to win is huge.

Expected new Arsenal manager Unai Emery has reportedly made it clear to the Gunners hierarchy that he wants to build his team next season around two key individuals: Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Monchi, who is now at Roma, would deal with transfers, mostly bringing in young or unproven players, while Emery as a coach would make them better.

Above all, Emery is a classy individual and deserves respect for the way he handled himself while with PSG.

He is going to Arsenal tasked with winning matches and silverware - not friends.
