Arsenal have identified former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola as the ideal replacement for current incumbent Arsene Wenger, as reported by the Daily Star.
Wenger’s side have struggled somewhat since the start of the season, despite having seen a significant summer spend take place.
The French manager was backed heavily in the summer transfer market, spending £32 million on Alexis Sanchez, but displays have not matched up to expectation.
He also took significant risks with the squad, going into the season with only Olivier Giroud available as a striker.
He was then forced to buy Danny Welbeck when Giroud picked up a long term injury.
There is also a sense that Wenger’s time in the game is coming to an end, with the boss getting older and younger managers regularly trumping him on a game by game basis.
As a result, the north London side are looking to Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola to replace Wenger when he chooses to call time on his Arsenal reign.
