The legendary one-time Gunners midfield player is currently working as the Football Development Executive for Premier League champions Manchester City, a job he has held for the past two years.
However, it is understood that the 36-year-old would jump at the chance to return to the club he starred with in the late Nineties and beyond, especially as he would get the opportunity to work with Wenger again on the training field as his current position at the Ethiad is more of an ambassadorial role.
Wenger has reportedly drawn up a shortlist of candidates to fill the key Head of Youth Development position at the club, starting at the end of this season, with one-time Arsenal striking legend Dennis Bergkamp also thought to be on the list of candidates to be charged with bringing the next generation of Gunners youngsters through to the first team.
