The Frenchman has announced that he will be stepping down as Gunners boss at the end of the current campaign after nearly 22 years in charge at the north London club.
Arsenal are now on the lookout for Wenger’s successor and the club have not yet confirmed who will be taking over from the Frenchman at The Emirates ahead of next season.
The Gunners have fallen short in the race for the Premier League title in recent seasons and they have not lifted the top-flight crown since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
Arsenal fans will be hoping to see their side step their game up in the coming seasons and be able to mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title.
And Wenger seems confident that the club has the required foundations in place to be able to challenge for the title in the years to come.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Wenger said: “It’s a big job. The club has gone through the most difficult period in the last 10 years, building the stadium.
“I always felt that after 2016 that the club would be in a financial situation where we would compete again.
“What I could not predict is that clubs would move up another level financially that makes it more difficult now.
“But I still think Arsenal will come back and compete for the championship.”
Arsenal have missed out on a top-four finish for the second season running, meaning that the next manager who takes charge at The Emirates will once again have to settle for a campaign without Champions League football.
