Arsenal conjure up shortlist of four managers

Arsenal have reportedly conjured up a shortlist of four managers with whom they view as potential replacements for long-serving boss Arsene Wenger.

According to newspaper outlets such as the Daily Telegraph and Daily Star, Arsenal chiefs are eyeing up the likes of Thomas Tuchel (Borussia Dortmund), Max Allegri (Juventus), Roger Schmidt (Bayer Leverkusen), and Leonardo Jardim (Monaco), as they fear Wenger may decide to walk away in the summer.

The Frenchman has come under increasing pressure from fans in recent weeks following damaging back-to-back defeats to Watford and Chelsea, which leaves the Gunners 12 points adrift of top spot, and now clinging onto 4th.

Wenger’s contract expires in the summer, and he may finally decide to call it quits after a whopping 21 years, although there are reports that he could sign a fresh two-year contract.

If Wenger does leave then Tuchel is believed to be the club’s number one choice, although the German is currently out at a very tempting 16/1 (Sky Bet) in the betting.

Tuchel replaced Jurgen Klopp at Dortmund in June 2015, with the club finishing runners-up to Bayern Munich in both the Bundesliga and German Cup, while they were knocked-out by Klopp’s Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Juventus boss Allegri has been touted as a possible successor to Wenger, and he’s refused to rule out a summer switch to the Premier League, with the Italian currently the 4/1 favourite for the Emirates job.

Other contenders include Leverkusen’s Schmidt and Monaco’s Jardim, with the latter currently top of the French league following a superb opening-half of the season. Meanwhile, Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe (5/1) is the only Englishman who features prominently in the market.

Arsenal (4th) will look to avoid a third defeat on the spin on Saturday (12.30pm) when they host a rejuvenated Hull (18th), under new boss Marco Silva, at the Emirates. Then, on Wednesday the Gunners lock horns with familiar foes Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
