Despite Arsene Wenger’s claim that he is not ready to leave Arsenal, several names have come up as potential replacement for the French tactician.
The latest is Leonardo Jardim who has fuelled speculation that he could be on the move to Arsenal after talking up the prospect of moving to the Premier League in the future.
The AS Monaco manager has emerged as one of the leading candidates to succeed Arsene Wenger if the Frenchman decides not to sign a new contract and walk away at the end of this season.
Jardim is in England this week as his Monaco side take on Manchester City in the Champions League, and his side are in superb form so far this season.
The Portuguese tactician has taken Monaco to the top of Ligue 1, and with an incredible tally of 76 goals in just 26 domestic matches.
Jardim seems well suited to the demands at Arsenal, and it seems a move to the Premier League is on his agenda.
‘Well, I think that all managers and players want to coach and play at the highest level and, today, the Premier League is perhaps the biggest national league in Europe,’ he said.
‘Everyone would like to have the opportunity to coach here.’
