Arsene Wenger has admitted the England job would be a “good challenge” but is unsure what his future holds as Arsenal plan to hold talks.
According to the Sunday Express, the Gunners are ready to offer the Frenchman a new contract to fend off interest from England, who have the 66-year-old as one of their top targets to replace Roy Hodgson.
Wenger has just one year remaining on his current Arsenal deal and, after a number of fan protests last season, his future at the Emirates has been cast into doubt.
When asked about the England vacancy, Wenger revealed that he could understand the attraction to the job but said that no decision has yet been made on what he plans to do at the end of the upcoming season.
“I have a contract until 2017 with Arsenal and I have always respected my contracts, but I don’t know what I’ll do after,” Wenger told beIN Sports.
“But it’s a good challenge [to manage England] for any coach. The players are young, they have quality players. They can only do better.”
Wenger, meanwhile, has been dealt a further blow in the transfer market following Jamie Vardy’s decision to stay at Leicester, with Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette also set to stay at his current club Lyon.
