Lukas Podolski says his former club would find it difficult to replace Arsene Wenger because "he is Arsenal".
The 31-year-old spent three years at Arsenal between 2012 and 2015.
Wenger - who has been in charge of Arsenal since 1996 - has been under pressure from some fans to quit after a run of six defeats in nine matches in all competitions.
The Frenchman is yet to announce his decision on his future at the Emirates Stadium.
I follow nearly every match - when not live, on social media - and I don't know what's happened.
Arsene Wenger is a good guy and a good coach. He built this club from nothing to now, and it will be interesting what happens in the next months.
I don't know who the guy is that can replace him. He is Arsenal.
Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin says being linked with Barcelona is "special".
The 22-year-old, who signed a new long-term contract in November at the Emirates Stadium, has been linked with a move to the Catalan giants or Manchester City.
Any player would be flattered by interest from Barca, it's the best club in the world and that is very nice.
The fact that I grew up in the Barca academy also makes this a bit more special, although for now I'm focused on these games and on the season, and the rest will come later.
When I left Barca my idea was not to return, because my exit was a little complicated. Just as other players who leave saying they will return, I went to live an adventure in England, to try to be a footballer and not return.
I left Barcelona because I felt the club did not have faith in me, I didn't feel valued. I was disillusioned.
But you don't know what the future holds and you cannot close any doors.
I know there was interest from Manchester City, it's flattering that a coach like Guardiola thinks of me. That's a sign that I'm doing things well.
It's very nice that there are several big clubs interested in me, but if one of them is Barca then it's special.
Members of the Arsenal Supporters' Trust say they are "extremely concerned" following reports that long-serving manager Arsene Wenger has been offered a contract extension at the Emirates Stadium.
There has been growing pressure from some fans for Wenger to quit after a run of six defeats in nine matches in all competitions, but it has been suggested the Frenchman will continue as manager of Arsenal.
After Saturday's 3-1 defeat to West Brom, Wenger - who has been in charge of Arsenal since 1996 - confirmed that he would announce his decision regarding his future "soon".
The AST is extremely concerned about the current situation at Arsenal and the apparent vacuum in decision making.
Recent results have not been good enough and matters must improve. We are also concerned about the drift in decision making at the club with the contract situation of so many key players at stake.
The AST does not usually survey its members on football issues during the season but results in recent weeks have led us to conclude there is an urgent requirement to now do so.
The situation around the manager’s contract is of great importance to the future of the club and yet the decision seems to have been outsourced to just one man. This is wrong.

Harry Redknapp expects Arsene Wenger to call time on his 21-year Arsenal career at the end of the season.
The Frenchman is under increasing pressure after six defeats in nine games across all competitions and said after Saturday's 3-1 loss at West Brom that he had made a decision on his future, with his contract up in the summer.
He did not reveal what verdict he had arrived at but indicated the public would find out "very soon".
It has been reported a compromise deal could be in the offing, with the existing two-year contract offer downgraded to a 12-month deal.
But Redknapp, a North London rival of Wenger's during his time at Tottenham, told BBC Radio Five Live he felt the end was close.
I would think so, yes.
He's had a fantastic career. He has been a great manager for Arsenal. Everyone has got great respect for him, what he's achieved over the years.
But I think maybe now it is time for a change.
Even from Arsenal's point of view, it's time for a new brush to come in and brighten the place up and have a new manager come in.
I'd hate for him to get chased out of there every week by the fans, he doesn't deserve that but I do think it is time maybe now for a change.
Arsene Wenger has said he will announce his plans "very soon" after reaching a decision about his future as Arsenal manager.Read the full story ›
