Arsenal line up ideal replacement for Unai Emery

Names have started to emerge as potential contenders for the post, with Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo the latest to be linked, although he refused to be drawn yesterday, saying discussing the speculation would be "disrespectful" to Emery.

Unai Emery's future is in doubt and some of the "Gunners" figures are ready to leave.

According to Charles Watts of GOAL, the Arsenal staff are now simply waiting for the sacking to be official.

Emery has come under increasing pressure in his second season after a run of six games without a win.

For Ralph Hasenhuttl's Saints, this would have been a much-needed morale boost but they have not won in the league since September 14, and are 19th in the 20-team league.

It has been suggested that Freddie Ljungberg or Steve Bould could take up an interim management position until a suitable replacement is found.

Mauricio Pochettino, Max Allegri and Mikel Arteta are all being eyed as possible replacements despite Arsenal giving Emery the vote of confidence during the worldwide break.

Former Arsenal forward Charlie Nicholas has accused Unai Emery of not coaching Matteo Guendouzi properly. Teams are coming here playing fearless.

Group leaders Arsenal can seal progress to the knockout stages of the Europa League with a win over Frankfurt and Emery said he hopes to "connect" with the disappointed fanbase and win them over. They intend to restore Arsenal to former glories, make them Champions League contenders and closer challengers to the Premier League's current major forces Manchester City and Liverpool.

For Emery, It's looking more like a matter of "when" and not "If" he would be sacked with each passing day.

The Gunners were forced to a 2-2 draw at the Emirates by Southampton and sources claim the players have lost faith in the Spanish manager. And, at the moment, we haven't achieved that balance to be strong. I wouldn't have thought, a year on, I'd be travelling with the first team.

The presence of Jose Mourinho at Tottenham could force Arsenal into a managerial change, says Tony Adams, with the Gunners "going backwards" under Unai Emery. "We need to show our supporters our capacity and skills".
