Managers across the world would jump at the chance of replacing Unai Emery as Arsenal boss.
Managing Arsenal is still a much-coveted role and there will be no shortage of managers that the Arsenal board can choose from.
There are a bunch of obvious candidates and some that are unfashionable and there is an argument that it may best serve Arsenal if they do not go down the obvious route.
Chelsea went with a former player and look at how it is working out for them. That said, Liverpool and Man City went with a high profile manager and success has followed.
Tottenham went for the coach of Southampton and reached the Champions League final. Man Utd went huge with Jose Mourinho and that was a failure. In better words, no one knows what will work and what will not.
Anyway, here are 12 contenders for consideration
Would he really cut his sabbatical short?
Would be very divisive.
Probably too negative.
Can he transition from Bournemouth to the big boys?
Would he leave Leicester City for Arsenal?
Is he high profile enough for Arsenal?
Erik ten Hag
A big leap from Dutch football to English.
Is his future with Man City or Arsenal?
Has he enough experience?
Assistant manager and well placed.
Back to the future
Player-manager, worth a thought
There are other contenders like Mikel Arteta, Laurent Blanc, Luis Enrique, Nuno Espírito Santo and so on but the list would get far too long.
So, which manager would you like to see at Arsenal in the event that Unai Emery departs?
