Pires, who won two FA Cups and two Premier League titles while with the Gunners, is a close ally of Wenger and has said that his experience of playing at the club can set him up for a spell in coaching in North London.
"If the next manager wants my help, I will say yes," the Frenchman told The Mirror. "I want to help Arsenal and I want to help the new manager. I want to be on the staff. I think I can help.
"It is an option for me and I hope it is an option for Arsenal. Arsenal have recently had a new sporting director from Dortmund (Sven Mislintat), which for me is not a problem, I respect the decision.
"But I think that some ex-players can help Arsenal. We know the high level and we won some titles. If I can give some advice for the players, it would be good."
