Unai Emery believes Arsene Wenger could become head coach of Paris Saint-Germain in the future.

Wenger caused a shock on Friday when it was announced he will leave Arsenal at the end of the season, bringing his near-22-year reign to an end.

As revealed by Goal, Wenger has no plans to retire from football and is targeting an immediate return to the game , potentially taking an international job or role as a director of football.

Emery is among the names to have been linked with Arsenal, with PSG expected to replace him at the end of the season following their failure to reach the latter stages of the Champions League.

Wenger himself, meanwhile, has been linked with taking Emery's job at PSG, although French media continues to report that Thomas Tuchel is the man that has been chosen to take over the Ligue 1 champions in the summer.

And the former Sevilla boss thinks Wenger has the ability to take charge at Parc des Princes before he calls time on his career.

"He is a reference for the world of football and us coaches. He has given inspiration to this sport," he told a news conference.

"Every year, a dozen coaches meet in Nyon and Wenger is a reference for all of us. He has always spoken well of me.

"I have great admiration for him as a person and as a coach. He has the quality and the experience to coach the best teams in the world, like PSG."
