Nigeria’s legend, Nwankwo Kanu, is among former Arsenal players who will attend Arsene Wenger’s last English Premier League (EPL) home game in charge of the Gunners against Burnley on Sunday.

The North London club, according to reports on its website, have written to all their former players who have made 100-plus league appearances for the club to grace the game at the Emirates Stadium.

Kanu, who joined Arsenal from Inter Milan in 1999 made 119 league appearances for the club and hit the back of the net 37 times.

He spent five years at the club before linking up with another Premier League side, West Bromwich Albion.

The likes of Sol Campbell, Thierry Henry, Tony Adams, Bob Wilson, Frank McLintock and other legends are also expected at the match.

In another development, Chinese Super League side, Shandong Luneng, has denied that Arsene Wenger will join the club when he leaves Arsenal at the end of this season.

Wenger will step down from the role at the Emirates Stadium after almost 22 years, with speculation concerning his next destination rampant.

But Shandong issued a statement on their social media outlets on Tuesday, to deny the 68-year-old Frenchman would be hired to replace current coach, Li Xiaopeng.

“We are surprised to learn from our friends online that Mr. Wenger will be transferring to our club.”

“Should we prepare a welcome dinner for him? We’re afraid the Professor won’t be a fan of our local style barbecue, so we are not inviting him over. We’re very comfortable with our own Professor Li,” the club wrote on Weibo.
