The days of Arsene Wenger at the helms for Arsenal are surely numbered but the search for his successor might turn out the most Arduous given the legacy he’s built.
Arsene Wenger turned 67 on Saturday and is out of contract at the end of this season – there is no telling if he would put pen to paper in a contract extension deal but there are already speculations as to who’ll take the managerial baton from him.
Edie Howe has been mentioned but the recent Diego Simeone now wants a move to the Premier League and he has been touted for the managerial role at Arsenal.
Simeone reportedly reduced his contract with the Rojiblancos earlier this season. He took it from 2020 to 2018 according to reports and he now has about 18 months to leave.
Naturally, he was tipped as Wenger’s successor, this is despite turning down offers from Chelsea, because Wenger was touted to manage England.
No doubt, the Premier League is the most exciting and The Mirror report claims that Simeone wants to join the likes of Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho.
This may be an unpopular opinion but I do think that Simeone is a logical candidate and Wenger could extend his contract by one year before he takes over.
