Emery denies Arsenal managerial offer

EPL By: Ambrose Udeme | 15/05/2018

Former PSG manager Unai Emery has admitted he's opened to becoming Arsenal’s new manager, but says he has not received any offer from the Premier League giants.

Arsene Wenger on Sunday managed his last game as Arsenal manager after 22-year reign, prompting the club's search for his successor.

Emery has been linked with the job alongside several other top managers, but the Spaniard revealed Arsenal had not approached him with an offer.

"I have no offer. Possibilities open up that can be concrete or not. I am open to everything.

"I don’t think about stopping coaching." he told Cadena SER via Metro.

Emery left Paris Saint-Germain this month at the expiry of his two years deal and with the French giants opting against the extension of his deal.

Former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel was on Monday drafted in to replace Emery, who won a domestic treble this season that included reclaiming the Ligue 1 title. Arsenal are thought to be keen to bring in a young coach to replace Wenger, with a view to another long-standing manager.
