It’s been another poor season for Arsenal, so it’s little surprise to see doubts are being raised over Arsene Wenger’s future again.
The French tactician’s job surely now hinges on winning the Europa League or it’s going to be another season outside of the Champions League and without the FA Cup to save him again.
For the keen gamblers reading this, there’s certainly money to be made from being a Casino Guru, but you could also pocket a decent amount from taking a look at the odds for the next Arsenal manager ahead of a likely change in the Emirates Stadium hot seat this summer…
Next Arsenal manager odds (Sky Bet)
Joachim Low – 3/1
The clear favourite at 3/1, Joachim Low looks a smart appointment if Arsenal can pull it off, though reports suggest Real Madrid are also after the World Cup-winning Germany boss.
Carlo Ancelotti – 9/4
A three-time Champions League winner, Carlo Ancelotti also has pedigree in English football, winning the double in his first year in charge of Chelsea back in 2009/10 before being rather harshly sacked for failing to repeat it the following season, but that’s Roman Abramovich for you.
Massimiliano Allegri – 7/1
Another Italian, Massimiliano Allegri has done fine work with Juventus and even though Arsenal would surely be a step down for him at this point, he must be tempted to test himself in the Premier League. He’s 7/1 to replace Wenger.
Brendan Rodgers – 9/1
Impressive at Liverpool before they jumped at the chance to replace a bigger name in Jurgen Klopp, Brendan Rodgers could be worth Arsenal taking a chance on after his success at Celtic.
Mikel Arteta – 10/1
Supposedly Wenger’s preferred candidate to succeed him, Mikel Arteta must be a decent shout at 10/1 after becoming highly rated as a coach working under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
