Arsenal have entered the post-Arsene Wenger era.

Lichtsteiner did hold talks with Valencia in January but was unable to agree terms on a move to the Mestalla, and the Gunners are now set to step in and secure the first arrival of Emery's tenure.

Former Chelsea star, Tony Cascarino has advised newly appointed Arsenal manager, Unai Emery to get rid of forward, Alex Iwobi and seven other Gunners' players from the club.

Lichtsteiner is seeking a new club after confirming that he will not be signing a new deal with current employers Juventus when his contract expires this summer.

Lichtsteiner, 34, has been targeted by the Gunners as they look to bolster their defence this summer, with Hector Bellerin now the club's only natural right-back.

It is believed should Arsenal look to make an offer for Seri, a bid of £35million or more could help to bring him to the Emirates Stadium, as he has an agreement with Nice. Or it's possible Emery sees the player as a rotation option in his new squad. I'll play overseas next year but I've not signed anything yet'.

He won the Serie A titles in each of his seven seasons at the club, as well as four Italian Cups, and is expected to captain Switzerland at next month's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Arsenal fans will undoubtedly hope Emery has something better up his sleeve this summer than Lichtsteiner, but they're actually very happy about the potential signing. The club had a fine campaign as they made it to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League and finished third in Serie A.
