The last two transfer windows did much to improve the mood around the Emirates. In the summer, the arrivals of Alexandre Lacazette and Saed Kolasinac managed to prevent the ‘Wenger OUT’ banners for the first half of the season while the arrivals of Henrich Mkhitaryan and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang also helped ease the pressure towards the board and Wenger.
However, a few weeks after the January transfer window closed, the pressure has once again increased against Wenger as the team continues to perform below par. Like any other season, the debate on Wenger’s future is now the main topic around the club and a few names have been tossed up with regards to who might succeed Wenger if indeed he mutually agrees to step down at the end of the season.
Leonardo Jardim (Monaco)
There are many names suggested by pundits and bookies as to who might succeed Wenger and you can visit these Arsenal Bookies using this site to take bets on who you think might be the new boss of Arsenal next season. One of the favourites is Leonardo Jardim, the Monaco manager with an impeccable eye for young talent. Jardim will fit the Arsenal philosophy perfectly, he loves total football and has huge faith in the young.
Joachim Low (Germany National Team)
Another frontrunner to succeed Wenger is the current Germany national team coach, Joachim Low. Low with his team Germany is expected to reach the latter stages of the FIFA World Cup in Russia. Bookie offers for betting on soccer specifically Germany’s journey in the upcoming World Cup can be accessed on several bookies’ sites. Low’s strength lies in developing players into finished products something Wenger has failed.
The departures of players such as Walcott, Oxlade Chamberlain, and Francis Coquelin can be attributed to Wenger’s failure to develop players. This is Low’s specialty and one can see that Arsenal needs someone like him who can develop underperforming players.
Paulo Fonseca (Shakhtar Donetsk)
Paulo Fonseca has made a name for himself with Shakhtar Donetsk. Shakhtar Donetsk plays in a league that is considered weak in comparison to other leagues in Europe such as the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1 among others.
However, despite this, he has shown how good a manager he is in the UEFA Champions League. Shakhtar Donetsk has beat some teams considered to be the best in Europe including Manchester City and Napoli. In addition to this, Fonseca can spot talent, something Arsenal has failed for many years now.
