North London giants Arsenal are on the search for a new manager on the back of the dismissal of Spanish tactician Unai Emery who had been in charge of the first team at the Emirates Stadium for over 18 months.
According to the Daily Mail, a list of seven potential candidates have been drawn up by Arsenal in their quest to find a replacement for Unai Emery.
The shortlist includes Mikel Arteta, Eddie Howe, Nuno Espirito Santo, Maximiliano Allegri, Patrick Vieira, Carlo Ancelotti, and Brendan Rodgers.
Ex-Gunners skipper Mikel Arteta ended his football career at Arsenal and he has been assistant manager to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City for the best part of the last two years.
