The club bosses must be thinking about the man to replace Arsene Wenger, when he finally leaves the club, and former Gunner Ray Parlour believes Diego Simeone has got to be taken into consideration.

“The obvious choice would be probably Simeone but it would probably go back to a bit more of a negative style of play,” Parlour told talkSPORT.

Back-to-back defeats ahead of the north London derby have put a huge dent in Arsenal’s title credentials and the atmosphere within the squad is not at its best.

Fans are angry at uninspiring performances from their players, most notably from Alexis Sanchez who has not scored in the Premier League since October.

The Chilean only made the situation worse with his last interview with a South American TV company when he questioned the attitude of his teammates and their lack of winning mentality.
