Arsenal are on the lookout for a new manager after the Gunners confirmed that Wenger would be standing down at the end of the season after 22 years in charge of the north London club.

Meanwhile, the Gunners are currently preparing for their crunch Europa League semi-final second leg showdown with Atletico Madrid in Spain on Thursday night.
