Arsenal are looking at appointing Luis Enrique as their manager if they were to dismiss Unai Emery, according to reports.

Emery is coming under increased pressure by fans due to their failure to qualify for the Champions League last season and to shore up a leaky defence.

Despite losing just two of their opening nine Premier League matches, the Gunners have again been poor at the back, conceding 12 goals to date.

And Football.London report that the North London club have their eye on potential new bosses if they were to get rid of Emery.

The pressure is firmly on Emery at Arsenal.

One of those is claimed to be Enrique, who left his job as Spain national team manager in June, two months prior to the death of his nine-year-old daughter.

It’s thought, despite interest from Arsenal, that Enrique isn’t sure whether he would like to return to the dugout at this stage.

The ex-Barcelona chief won nine trophies in his three-year spell in charge of the Catalan club before departing the Camp Nou in 2017.

As well as the 49-year-old Spaniard, the Gunners are also thought to be considering Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers and former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri.

Arsenal are currently fifth in the Premier League and next face Crystal Palace at the Emirates on Sunday.
