Since Wenger announced he was to step down after 22 years on the job last month, experienced managers from Juventus boss Max Allegri to young bucks such as the recently retired Arteta have been heavily linked.
Below, we whittle down the shortlist to five – and surely one will be in the Emirates dugout come August.
The veteran French coach stood down at the end of the Premier League season following 22 years at the helm of the Gunners, with the search now on for his successor.
Former Arsenal midfielder Arteta has emerged as a leading contender, having worked as an assistant to Pep Guardiola at champions Manchester City.
Wenger has no doubts the 36-year-old would be up to the challenge and, in an interview with beIN SPORTS, he said: “He has all the qualities to do the job and I think as well he is one of the favourites.
“He was a leader, and he has a good passion for the game and he knows the club well, he knows what is important at the club and he was captain of the club. Why not?”
The 22-year-old has put pen to paper on a deal which keeps him with Spurs until 2023.
Winks made 25 appearances for Tottenham this season but only three since the turn of the year, all in the FA Cup.
An ankle injury hampered him during the second half of the campaign, costing him a chance of a place in England’s World Cup squad.
Centre-half Cameron Carter-Vickers, 20, has also committed his future to the club by agreeing a new contract until 2021.
✍️ We are delighted to announce that @HarryWinks has signed a new contract with the Club, which will run until 2023.
