Former Barcelona manager emerges as top target to replace Emery at Arsenal

Former Barcelona and Spain national team coach Luis Enrique has emerged as a top target to replace under-pressure Arsenal manager Unai Emery. 

The pressure is increasing for the former PSG man after the club suffered yet another English Premier League defeat on Saturday at the hands of Leicester; a 2-0 loss. 

Second-half goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison were enough to serve the Gunners the defeat, which means they have only won twice in the last 10 matches. 

Arsenal chiefs are said to be keen on replacing Emery, and The DailyMail reports plans are underway to have the former Barcelona man, whom they have reportedly made contact with. 

Enrique has been out of management since leaving the Spanish national team for personal reasons and might need a lot of convincing to get back to management. 

For this reason, he might be considered as a long-term Emery replacement, who might come in at the end of the season. 

Following the defeat, Arsenal dropped to sixth on the English Premier League table, nine points of fourth-placed Chelsea, who beat Crystal Palace 2-0. 

With the team seemingly out of the title race, the Gunners will aim to finish in the top-four bracket and secure Champions League come May. 

They next play Southampton after the International break.
