Arsene Wenger has been conspicuous by his absence since leaving Arsenal in 2018.
Wenger is the greatest manager in Arsenal’s history but was still scarred by his departure and also the fans who were divided in the latter part of his 22-year reign.
But now the Arsenal hierarchy are keen to welcome Wenger back to the Emirates and it is understood senior figures at the club have been making inroads to talk him into it.
Wenger, 70, has always said that he will forever be an Arsenal fan but admitted publicly that he has been reluctant to go back.
But the hierarchy would love to welcome him back to help garner support among the fans.
Frenchman Wenger, who has since taken up a role with FIFA, would surely get a heroic homecoming and it would help unify the supporter base as new manager Mikel Arteta tries to get the club back on track.
There have also been talks about making a statue for Wenger to go alongside current club legends like Dennis Bergkamp, Thierry Henry, Tony Adams and Herbert Chapman. They promised to build Wenger a statue when he left and it is believed he has agreed to sit for it to be made.
Arteta is also doing his bit to tap into the club’s traditions, talking to ex-members of staff and also paying a visit to the offices at Highbury House to talk to staff which was something Unai Emery never did.
