Arsenal have decided to sign up former Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery as the club’s new manager.
The North London outfit have been searching for a manager to succeed Arsene Wenger, who resigned from his position at the end of the season following a 22-year spell in charge.
Former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta, who spent six years at the club before retiring and joining Manchester City’s coaching staff, was thought to be the favorite.
However, according to BBC Sport, the club’s board have opted to appoint Emery, who was sacked by PSG earlier in May notwithstanding guiding the club to the Ligue 1 title.
The report claims that Arsenal’s hierarchy collectively agreed on hiring the 46-year-old, who won five trophies during his two-year stay at the French outfit.
Prior to that, Emery, coached Sevilla for three years, during which he scooped three Europa League crowns.
