Former Gunners captain Vieira is one of several managers being tipped to replace Wenger after Arsenal confirmed he would step down at the end of the season. Arsene Wenger jokes that the tributes to him after the decision to leave Arsenal feel like witnessing his own funeral.

Ospina has been Wenger's designated cup goalkeeper for the past two seasons but missed the Europa League quarterfinal against CSKA Moscow with an injury.

They'll face competition from Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp an admirer of Stones, but with Arsenal's new manager certain to overhaul the notoriously fragile Gunners defence, it's expected that they will see the City blocker as a good buy.

I'd tell you it's 51-49% Atletico.

"Atletico are heavy favourites for me with their defensive strength and Arsenal's backline constantly making me nervous". He had an X-ray, but I don't know how bad it is.

"I thought it was a really unusual selection not starting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang".

The club have confirmed that after nearly 22 years in charge of the Gunners, Wenger will step down at the end of the current campaign.

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, former Arsenal and England defender Campbell said: "I think there should be an important push to get guys who have done really well for Arsenal back into the club".

"I think they'll give Arsene Wenger three, four, five days of what would be the incredible acknowledgement and appreciation of his achievements, that's probably right".

"Unfortunately it doesn't look too good".

"I don't want this to be perceived that I want to go because I don't want to leave".
