Arsenal are claimed to be set to offer Thierry Henry a new role as coach of the Under-18 side, while Mikel Arteta is believed to be offered the chance to join the coaching staff also.
The debate about our manager and who might take over will continue to rage among Arsenal fans, of course, for as long as Arsene Wenger is still in charge. A good summer transfer window from the Frenchman and a good start to next season will help to calm down the calls for Wenger to step down but I do not think that even winning the Premier League title would see them disappear altogether.
The Arsenal and Germany international star’s Premier League assist tally is still stuck on 18 for the season, meaning that he has just three games left to get the three more he needs to break the EPL record of 20 currently held by our very own Thierry Henry.
Jamie Redknapp has revealed that Thierry Henry is a big fan of Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi, and has highlighted his attitude as his strong point.
The 19 year-old has hit the ground running in the first-team this season, earning the right to start matches away at Everton and Barcelona in recent weeks.

I must admit that I would be surprised to see the Arsenal board appoint our former striker Thierry Henry as the new manager before he cut his teeth anywhere else, but stranger things have happened. And the flying Frenchman took one step closer to replacing his former mentor Arsene Wenger this week as he completed the next stage of his UEFA coaching courses.
This could all be speculation of course, as the football media gets their teeth stuck into a host of Arsenal rumours about the growing pressure on the manager Arsene Wenger. But there is no doubt that there will be a lot of questions for the Frenchman to answer, from the fans and the press if not from inside the club itself, if the Gunners let slip what looked like the perfect chance to end the wait for another Premier League trophy this season.
We often hear the same thing from Arsene Wenger or various members of the Arsenal squad about mental toughness, team spirit ir the ability to bounce back from a disappointing performance or run of results. And they have done that a few times but on the other hand, it keeps happening.
