Arsenal have made a last minute move to make former PSG coach Unai Emery their new coach following the departure of long term manager Arsene Wenger.
The Gunners had looked all set to appoint their former player and current Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta as their new boss, but the North London club have now decided to hold talks with Emery before making any final decision according to a report in the Daily Mail.
Emery is out of work after leaving PSG at the end of this season despite leading the Parisien club to a domestic treble. The 46-year-old Spaniard developed a reputation as being one of Europes best up-and-coming coaches after guiding La Liga side Sevilla to a record three successive Europa League titles between 2013-2016 before moving to the French capital.

Emery certainly has a much more impressive managerial CV then other leading candidates like Arteta and former Gunners legend Thierry Henry.
However, the former Sevilla coach will have to get used to working with a far more restricted transfer budget then he will have been used to at money bags PSG over the last couple of seasons.
