Arsenal have reportedly looked to Ligue 1 for their next target on the shortlist to replace Arsene Wenger (via The Metro).
It’s going to be perhaps the most important decision the club has made since moving to the Emirates Stadium.
The question of who will replace Arsene Wenger as the club’s manager is something which every Gunners fan has an opinion on.
There is a reported shortlist of targets which the club is looking at which includes Leonard Jardim, Carlo Ancelotti and Eddie Howe but it seems that there is another name on the list.
Reports in France suggest that the Gunners are looking at Lucien Favre as a potential replacement for his countryman.

Favre is the current manager of the French side OGC Nice which finished third in Ligue 1 last season.
Formerly of Hertha BSC and Borussia Monchengladbach, Favre has been highly thought of in continental Europe for some time. He represents many similar qualities to Arsene Wenger which is perhaps why he is being considered for the job.
