New Arsenal boss Unai Emery could axe Steve Bould and Jens Lehmann in dramatic staff shake-up

The Gunners boss has been given the green light to appoint five of his closest allies from Paris Saint-Germain.

And the new Spanish cartel will replace the old stalwarts who served Arsene Wenger so loyally during his long Arsenal reign.

Top of Emery’s recruitment drive are his assistant coaches Juan Carlos Carcedo and Pablo Villa, who will replace Boro Primorac and Bould.

Former assistant boss Bould has been asked to be a link-man between Emery and the players.

And the club are also hoping that a position can be found for Arsenal Invincible Lehmann.

But he will not replace Gerry Peyton as goalkeeping coach as that job is going to Javi Garcia, who confirmed yesterday he is moving to the Emirates.

Also set to join Team Emery are Julen Masach, who will replace Tony Colbert as fitness coach, and video analyst Victor Manas.

Asked if he was keen to work under Emery, Ramsey said: “Of course. It’s an exciting time for the club. I can’t wait to get back there now.”
