Is a current Gunner going to become a member of Pep's coaching team? That is what the papers say today.

With many of this season's big questions all but resolved, it is understandable that the papers are already licking their lips at the thought of next season. 

With the likes of Klopp, Wenger and Pochettino already in place, and with Guardiola and Conte on the way, next season is shaping up to be a real blockbuster, at least on the sidelines.

Add in the possibility of Mourinho joining the fun and the 2016-17 season should be anything but boring.

What may happen at the Etihad under Pep is the big story today, as the Mirror claims the Spaniard wants to add fellow countryman, and current Arsenal player, Mikel Arteta to his coaching team at City.

Arteta, 34, is reported to be considering retirement in the summer and has already begun to do his coaching qualifications. With him and Pep knowing each other since their early days at Barcelona, Arteta may be a handy ally to guide the new man through the ways of the Premier League.

Away from Man City, The Daily Star reports new Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has told Brazilian striker ALEXANDRE PATO he has a future at Stamford Bridge.

Conte may have to wait and see his goalkeeper situation, though, as the Daily Telegraph claims both THIBAUT COURTOIS and ASMIR BEGOVIC are weighing up their options.

The Guardian writes Liverpool will go head-to-head with Europa League opponents Borussia Dortmund off the field this summer as the two clubs battle over Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder MAHMOUD DAHOUD.

And finally Aston Villa striker JORDAN AYEW could be a target for high-flying West Ham in the summer, according to the Daily Mail.
