Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is facing a shake up of his coaching staff.

Steve Bould is being linked with Stoke City today.

Wenger is already on the lookout for a new man to ­succeed Liam Brady as the head of Arsenal's youth ­academy.

And as we revealed two weeks ago, the favourite for the post is Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp, who is currently technical manager at Ajax.

Wenger will also consider ­appointing another keeping coach after problems in that department resurfaced this season.
