Arsenal has been linked with a sensational move for one of Ligue 1 best managers, according to reports.
Leonardo Jardim is currently manager of AS Monaco, the club he joined in 2014, and he has a contract until 2020.
The 43-year-old’s main draw is the team he put together in 2016/17.
The young side played impressive attacking football as they won Ligue 1 ahead of Paris Saint-Germain.’
They also made the Champions League semi-finals, the Coupe de France semi-finals and finished runners-up in the Coupe de la Ligue.
Monaco then sold most of their key players to a host of teams around Europe. The club have struggled to keep up this year as a result, although they’re still second in Ligue 1 behind PSG.
Such a young manager with experience managing in the biggest European matches could appeal to the Arsenal board.
They’d need to convince Monaco to let him go first, though.
