But during his press conference today ahead of Thursday's Europa League clash against Atletico Madrid, the Frenchman said the decision was not his. "And for the rest I've spoken about it already", Wenger answered when asked why he's stepping down this year, despite a current contract that runs until next.
NAIJ.com previously reported that Carlo Ancelotti has been offered the job of becoming the new Italy boss amid speculation of managing Arsenal.
Speaking to football.london, Campbell said: "I think they should see if they can promote from within". I will continue to work, that's for sure. "At the moment I'm just focused on that".
Atleti now sit second in the Spanish league, ahead of Real Madrid, and also have European pedigree having won the Europa League in 2012 and having reached the Champions League finals in 2014 and 2016.
"I don't know. I don't look for myself", he continued.
" I want to do as well as I can".
"The next game is in Europe and then we face United".
"Is there a flawless goodbye?" The likes of Julian Naglesmann, Joachim Low, Mikel Arteta, Leonardo Jardim, Luis Enrique and even Massimiliano Allegri have all been chosen as potential successors to longest serving manager in the Premier League. We have to put a performance in on the pitch. They are a very efficient team and a team who can use every weak moment of their opponent.
"People want to know what the future is about".
"My biggest satisfaction would be to be successful together with the group of players that I have".
Winning the Europa League in Simeone's first season in charge in 2012 set the platform to win La Liga two years later, and he hopes recreating that winning feeling will spark another era of success.
Atletico also won the 2012 Europa League before graduating into Champions League regulars. "And also because these are two teams used to playing in the Champions League night".
