Report: Unai Emery now clear favourite to replace Wenger

PSG coach Unai Emery has emerged as the clear favourite to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager this summer.

According to a report in the Daily Express the Gunners have decided to move for the Spanish coach after their two other main targets Juventus’ Massimiliano Allegri and former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique both expressed concerns about the two tier management structure that has been recently implemented at the North London club.

Emery moved to PSG in the summer of 2016 after impressing as Sevilla manager, were he won a record three consecutive Europa League titles.

The Qatari owned Parisien club had hoped that the 45-year-old could use his European nous to help them reach their main target of winning the Champions League.

However, despite PSG spending countless million they have been unable to seriously challenge for the Continents top prize: last season they were embarrassingly dumped out at the quarter-final stage after allowing a 4-0 lead to slip against Barcelona and this year they went out meekly in the round of 16 to Real Madrid.

Although Emery has delivered domestic domination this season, he has already announced that he will be leaving Paris at the end of the season and it looks as if his new home will be North London.
