Arsenal’s head coach, Unai Emery is under a lot of pressure with reports coming in from the English club about a possible replacement if he is sacked.
Arsenal are looking at Wolves Nuno Espirito Santo as a potential replacement for Unai Emery if the Gunners decide to do away with the Spaniard.
The Gunners haven’t had a solid win in a while now with six registered winless matches across all competitions which is had put Unai under a lot pressure and criticism from fans.
Out of the 13 Premier League games played so far, Arsenal have only won four of those making it one of the poorest performances they have had in their career.
If the London team sacks Unai, there’s a possibility that the Portuguese could find himself engaged in talks with Arsenal being that he’s has been considered as the best option to take over.
Meanwhile, as reports continue to surface over whether Arsenal is soon finding a new head coach, Emery is more focused on the team’s upcoming match at home against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday.
According to him, he is only focused on “today and tomorrow” as he prepares for his side’s Europa League match at home. “My job is to prepare for the match, to show the best performance in front of our supporters,” he said.
His side go into Thursday’s game top of Group F, four points clear of both their German opponents and Standard Liege.
