    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said he is open for the England managerial role in the future, but his current focus remains the North London club.

    When asked about the role, Wenger told the BBC,"One day, if I'm free, why not?". Interestingly, Wenger's contract with the Gunners expires at the end of the current season.

    The English FA is searching for Sam Allardyce's successor, who was asked to vacate the position in the wake of a newspaper sting investigation. England Under-21 boss Gareth Southgate takes charge of the senior team for the next four games as the FA assesses its options.

    Wenger had earlier turned down the prospect of taking up the job, after former manager Roy Hodgson stepped down following England's disastrous Euro 2016 campaign.

    The Frenchman is one of the most decorated managers in the history of English top-flight football having won 15 trophies with Arsenal. 'The Professor' also celebrates 20 years with the Gunners on Sunday against Burnley in the Premier League.
