The speculation about who would succeed Unai Emery as the Arsenal head coach were mounting even before the club decided to part ways with the Spaniard, and since it happened it’s gone through the roof. However, the names are always the same, always the same quartet.

Freddie Ljungberg has been appointed to the role as a temporary solution, but according to football.london, he is also the leading candidate for the permanent role. Giving the former Arsenal midfielder a proper chance would likely prove a popular decision among the club’s supporters, at least in the beginning. After that, the amount of love and support he’d be receiving from the Emirates stands would likely depend on results and performances. He has no experience in first-team management, but he knows the youth setup well and young players would certainly benefit from his appointment.

On a podcast the respected journalist did for his current employers, together with Mark Chapman, he said that things looked as it was now ‘a matter of when, rather than if’, but it would still depend on the immediate results.

Arsenal were defeated by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday evening by 3-1 with young Konstantinos Mavropanos was sent off in the 15th minute, and although the result means absolutely nothing point-wise, it would have been nice if it could have ended otherwise.

This was the game before last with Arsene Wenger in charge of the team, and the players will have a chance of sending the long-enduring manager off with a better result when they meet Huddersfield on Sunday. David Wagner’s men endured a strong test at Stamford Bridge in midweek. They got away with a single point that guarantees their Premier League survival, all but ending Chelsea’s hopes of a top-four finish. Arsenal can be backed at 8/13 to win Wenger’s last game in charge.

Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and current Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri are the favourites to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, according to Sky Sports.

Wenger enjoyed a good send-off in his last home game of the season on Sunday, as the Gunners hammered Burnley. The clubs hierarchy has no doubt made moves behind the scenes to seek a quality replacement for Wenger.

Both winners at the top level

Enrique and Allegri are both proven winners at the top level of football. Barcelona won virtually every club trophy under Enrique, while Juventus have continued to dominate Serie A under Allegri. The Bianconeri also always do well in the Champions League.

According to reports from Bosnian publication Pravda BL, Liverpool assistant manager Zeljko Buvac could be the next Arsenal boss. There was a recent story that Buvac had left the Merseyside club. However, it has now been confirmed by the Liverpool Echo that the 56-year-old has been allowed leave until the end of the season for personal reasons.

The leave comes at a strange time considering that the Reds are facing Roma in a vital Champions League semi-final second leg on Wednesday night, although Klopp’s side does have a 5-2 lead from the first leg at Anfield.
