Mikel Arteta is surely going to be sweating over his job safety after yet another shoddy result for Arsenal this week.
Following a poor showing in their 3-0 home defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League, the Gunners were held 1-1 at home by Slavia Prague in the Europa League on Thursday evening.
Arteta may have guided Arsenal to the FA Cup last season, but ever since then things have gone quickly downhill for the Spanish tactician, who is perhaps showing his inexperience in such a challenging job.
We’re not sure about current bookies’ odds on Arteta being sacked or who could replace him, and it might be worth doing your gambling in the ベラジョンカジノ(Vera John casino) until then, but we’ve already started looking at five potential replacements at the Emirates Stadium…
A Premier League title winner with Chelsea back in 2016/17, Conte is now also doing fine work with Inter Milan as they finally look set to end Juventus’ dominance in Serie A this season.
The Italian tactician is a proven winner with experience and more tactical nous than Arteta, so it’s surely a no-brainer for Arsenal if they can lure him back to England.
Conte did recently tell the Telegraph he’d like another spell with a Premier League club, so Arsenal should definitely look into this as soon as possible.
Another former Chelsea boss, Carlo Ancelotti has done fine work with Everton and could surely get more out of this Arsenal squad than Arteta is managing.
The Italian tactician has enjoyed tremendous success throughout his career, winning the Champions League three times alongside a number of other major honours in a variety of top European leagues.
Arsenal were linked with Ancelotti before opting for Arteta, but perhaps it’s time to right that wrong.
An elite coach who’s somehow still out of work, Massimiliano Allegri has also been linked with Arsenal and other top clubs in recent times and seems ideal to turn things around right now.
Allegri has won titles with Juventus and AC Milan, and while Arsenal would be a bigger challenge, he’s surely a safer pair of hands than Arteta.
If AFC want a more Premier League-proven option, they could also do well to look to Leicester City’s hugely impressive Brendan Rodgers.
The Northern Irish tactician did some fine work at Liverpool before being replaced by Jurgen Klopp, and with hindsight it was perhaps a little unlucky that he didn’t get longer at Anfield.
His stint at Leicester has turned the Foxes into genuine top four contenders, all whilst playing a brand of football that should also go down well at the Emirates.
A hugely promising young coach, Julian Nagelsmann surely won’t be at RB Leipzig for much longer after plenty of links with bigger jobs.
Arsenal would be very smart to snap him up quickly or it’s surely inevitable that someone like Bayern Munich will be making their move before too long.
Nagelsmann might have bigger offers than Arsenal, but if the north Londoners move quickly they could surely persuade him to swap the Bundesliga for his first shot at the glamour of the Premier League.
