Sport's David Ornstein reports the Gunners are set to name former Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery as their new manager.

As the club look towards improving next season, having again failed to qualify for the Champions League, two possible transfer targets to emerge are Borussia Dortmund centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu.

Several sources in the United Kingdom are reporting that Emery's appointment at the Emirates is imminent, after he emerged as the unanimous choice following a recruitment process in which several candidates were spoken to.

PSG had previously reached four consecutive Champions League quarter-finals following the Qatari takeover of the club in 2011, but Emery oversaw a humiliating defeat to Barcelona in the last 16 a year ago, losing 6-1 at the Camp Nou after a 4-0 win in the first leg. I worked with him for three years.

An announcement and news conference are expected later this week. "Arsène who?" did not turn out too badly.

The former appeared for several clubs in the Spanish second tier, whilst the latter competed with Real Union in the top division and his uncle Roman played as a midfielder.

That's according to former Arsenal striker Alan Smith, who doesn't doubt that Emery has got the ability to succeed at the Emirates.

"He was a leader, has good passion for the game, knows the club and knows what is important at the club", Wenger told BeIn Sports.

However, according to the United Kingdom press, the Spaniard's interest in the position has cooled, and Emery has since been touted as the man most likely to try and fill the huge void left by Wenger's departure.

Hailing from the Basque region of Spain, Emery, having only managed in his native country, Russia (Spartak Moscow) and France, reportedly doesn't speak much, if any, English.
