Arsenal have reportedly got a five-person list of managers who could potentially replace Arsene Wenger (via The Mirror).
It has been a tough twelve months for Arsenal Football Club and if Sunday’s defeat to Manchester City is anything to go by, things won’t change anytime soon.
The lifeless display from the Gunners in the Carabao Cup final has again increased calls for a new manager at the Emirates.
Now, it has been revealed that Arsenal have a five-man list of manager which the club think could potentially replace Arsene Wenger.
The expected names like Joachim Loew and Leonardo Jardim are on there but there are also some surprise candidates.
Former club captain and current Manchester City coach, Mikel Arteta is reportedly in the running, as are Brendan Rodgers and Paulo Fonseca.

Fonseca is the current manager of Shakhtar Donetsk and attracting a host of admirers for his side’s style of play and success in Ukraine.
It’s clear that the time to replace Arsene Wenger has long since past and the Gunners have a promising list of candidates to do just that. The five are all on the younger side of the spectrum and with the exception of a couple – none of them have any real experience of managing a big side. Mikel Arteta is a hugely promising figure and would make a fine Arsenal manager one day but from that list, Loew and Jardim are the best candidates.
