“I asked Arsene about Golovin, the Frenchman said, “I do not know what Arsenal will do, but I’ll take him for myself.” Varga also added, “Arsene wants to work. While there is no certainty, we negotiated with two clubs, but did not come to an agreement. But if Wenger takes [charge of] any team, Golovin will have another option.”

New Gunners manager Unai Emery is said to be also interested in the 22 year old Russian international and are planning to make a move for him. So it will be interesting to see whether Wenger can lure the Russian to his new team if at all he returns in the managerial job.
