According to a number of rumours in the English media this afternoon, Arsenal are considering paying tribute to soon-to-be former manager Arsene Wenger by renaming a stand at the Emirates in his honour.

While the majority of the talk regarding Wenger’s decision to finally step down has surrounded who Arsenal are set to name as the Frenchman’s replacement, Manchester United’s tribute to the Gunners’ icon at Old Trafford on Sunday evening has since seen many question just how Arsenal plan to do Wenger justice with a tribute of their own.
