And following a period of rest, the 68-year-old feels ready to launch into a new role early next year.

In an interview with German newspaper Bild, the Frenchman, who won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups with the Gunners, shared details on his highly-anticipated comeback.

“I believe that (I will) start again on January 1. I don’t know (where) yet. I feel rested and am ready to work again,” said Wenger.

“There are associations, national teams, it could be also (in) Japan.

“From my 22 years at Arsenal, I have big experience on different levels. There are enquiries from all over the world.”

One of those offers reportedly comes from French champions Paris Saint-Germain, who are keen to make Wenger their new director of football.

The former Gunners boss recently admitted he has been impressed by the work of manager Thomas Tuchel amid talks of a possible link-up between the two.

Speaking after coaching a team in Per Mertesacker’s charity match, Wenger said: “I hold [Tuchel] in high regard. He has adapted very quickly to French football,” Wenger said.

“He looks very smart and has a good connection with his players.

“His start at PSG has been great. The first impressions are very positive, and I think that’s very important when you come from abroad.

“You must have some luck to start well, but the quality is there. There will be some harder matches to come for PSG in the future and the expectations in Paris are very high.

“I hope that he can also be successful in the Champions League.”
