Chris Sutton reckons Brendan Rodgers would take the chance to upgrade to Arsenal.
Arsenal should do all they can to make Brendan Rodgers their next manager, that has been the cry of several former Arsenal players.
However, the Gunners have made Freddie Ljungberg their interim manager as they are not in a hurry to name a new permanent manager.
The Gunners fired Unai Emery on Friday after a run of seven games without a win.
With the likes of Max Allegri being considered for the job, Celtic legend, Chris Sutton believes the Gunners would land Rodgers if they make a move for him.
Brendan Rodgers has lifted Leicester City to 2nd on the league table this season and the former Liverpool boss remains one of the most highly-rated British managers at the moment.
Sutton insists that Rodgers would jump at the chance of replacing Unai Emery permanently despite his current achievement with Leicester City.
He said on BT Sport’s Early Kick-Off as cited by the Daily Record: “The best person for the job at this moment in time is Brendan Rodgers.
“Would he leave Leicester? Well, he left Celtic.
“He left the team he supported as a boy and the best job in the world to downgrade and go to Leicester, so why wouldn’t he want to upgrade and go to Arsenal?
“If you’re a Leicester fan, wouldn’t you want to hear Brendan Rodgers come out and say: ‘I’m totally committed to Leicester, I’m not going to go to Arsenal’.
“He had the chance to do that yesterday, and did he? No.”
