Wenger, who was given a befitting send off on Sunday, however siad he is not considering any of the offers as he is concentrating fully on his remaining games in charge of the Gunners.

''Yes, more than I expected. But I'm not analysing or considering anything. I want to work well here until the last day of my contract.

''For sure I will be active. My brain demands work and is active. Honestly, I don’t know. I have to think about that. I like green grass and I like to walk on it every morning. I don’t know if I’ll continue that, it’s possible.

''I have huge experience in management. Overall, I will work. What will I do? I don't know.,'' he said.

Wenger also encouraged Arsenal to name his successor ahead of the World Cup. When pressed on the quality of candidates such as Luis Enrique and Maximilliano Allegri, he said: ''I know these guys are very competent and all good names.

''I will be like every Arsenal fan, I will wait until they’ve made a decision and then afterwards support the guy in doing well. I think the earlier, the better. People want hope and they need as well to prepare for the next season.''

Wenger will manage his final two games against Leicester and Huddersfield this week as the curtain comes down on his long service at Arsenal.
