Arsene Wenger has met with PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi, fueling speculation that the Parisians are unhappy with sporting director Antero Henrique, according to L’Equipe.
The legendary Arsenal manager said in October that he was ready to start back to work.
He told Sky Sports: “I feel rested and am ready to work again. But where? I don’t know yet.”
There was also no confirmation of the next role that he would take up, which makes the meeting with the PSG president all the more intriguing.
If Wenger does get the nod to replace Henrique in the French capital, it could bode extremely well for Gunners misfit Mesut Ozil.
The Sun reported recently that the German had turned down a move to Ligue 1 during January, as he didn’t want to leave on loan.
PSG could be in a position to buy the player outright come the summer and if Wenger gets the nod that might smooth the deal somewhat.
The 30-year-old is reportedly on £350,000 per week at the Emirates Stadium, according to The Sun, and PSG weren’t willing to take that on during January.
Ozil has started just half of Arsenal’s league games this season and appears way down the pecking order under Unai Emery.
The attacking midfielder is far too good to not be playing football.
Ozil hasn’t lived up to his billing in the Premier League, but when fit he played more often than not under Wenger at Arsenal.
If Wenger lands a new role with the French giants, one of his first jobs should be to go and land Ozil for boss Thomas Tuchel.
Whilst he wouldn’t be his manager at the Ligue 1 outfit, Ozil would surely jump at the chance to revive his career and repay the faith shown by Wenger.
