Arsene Wenger has urged Arsenal to appoint former Gunners defender Giovani van Bronckhorst as his successor.

Wenger, who has been in charge since 1996 signed a two-year contract extension in May, much to the disappointment of many Gooners, but his latest deal could be his last at the club.

Finding someone to step into his shoes looks set to be a massive task for the Gunners board.

The Daily Mail claim that the Frenchman identifies Van Bronckhorst, 42, as a top candidate, along with Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe, who is three years younger.

The Dutchman spent two years at Arsenal under Wenger and lifted the FA Cup and the Premier League. He has enjoyed great success as manager since taking charge at Feyenoord in March 2015, winning the KNVB Cup as well as the Dutch title – their first in 18 years.

Despite failing to challenge on all fronts, Arsenal are still picking up trophies. Wenger has orchestrated three FA Cup triumphs in four seasons, making him the competitions most successful manager.

Gooners, would you be happy with Gio? Or is there another manager you have your eyes on? Let us know in the comments…
