Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly set to take up the director’s role at French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Wenger, 68, has been without a managerial job since he left Arsenal in the summer.

The Frenchman was appointed the Arsenal manager in 1996 and he went on to win three Premier League titles as well as seven FA Cup titles over a 22-year period in North London.

According to a report from French news outlet RMC Sport, European heavyweights PSG want Wenger to be their director of football.

In the absence of Wenger, Arsenal have surged to the top places on the Premier League table following an impressive run of six consecutive victories.

His successor Unai Emery has done a very good job since he signed a three-year contract as Arsene Wenger’s replacement in the summer.

The Gunners’ 5-1 Premier League win over Fulham in their London Derby clash on Sunday means that Arsenal have now won their last nine matches in all competitions.

In-form French striker Alexandre Lacazette was on target twice in addition to further goals from the substitute duo of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (two goals) and Aaron Ramsey.

The Fulham result propelled the North Londoners to the top four for the first time and just two points off top spot.
