The 68-year-old will depart the club following nearly 22 years in its dugout, during which he won three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups and six Community Shields.

Many tacticians have been linked with replacing Wenger since the announcement of his impending departure was made, but the current favourite seems to be Carlo Ancelotti, according to Football London. The Italian is a free agent after leaving Bayern Munich earlier this season, and is one of the most successful managers in the game.

Another name high on Arsenal's reported wish list is Thomas Tuchel. It has been argued that his relationship with Sven Mislintat, who was recently appointed as the English club's chief scout, from their time together at Borussia Dortmund could be a persuading factor. However, the 44-year-old has been heavily linked with replacing Unai Emery at Paris Saint-Germain, and actually had a troubled relationship with Mislintat.

Former FC Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is also a free agent after taking a sabbatical this season and the Spaniard is another candidate heavily linked with Arsenal. Enrique won nine throphies during three years at FC Barcelona and many Arsenal fans believe the 47-year-old would be perfect to lead Arsenal into the next season.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone is another name that is continuously being linked with Arsenal, but it remains to be seen whether or not he would leave the Spanish side for Premier League football.

Other names linked with the Gunners are Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe, Germany's Joachim Low, Pep Guardiola's assistant and former Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta, AS Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim, and Celtic's Brendan Rodgers. You can find the complete list in the gallery above.

Carlo will help the team to the next level. Since Arsenal doesn't have much money this will be the best choice for them Free agent. I don't trust former Barca coach at all
