Arsenal have reportedly opened talks with Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo in their bid to appoint a replacement for Unai Emery.
Ex-Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Valencia and Sevilla manager Unai Emery was sacked at Arsenal after a run of seven games without a win in all competitions namely the Premier League, Carabao Cup, and the Europa League.
Shortly after his sack, Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg was named as his replacement albeit on a temporary basis.
According to RMC Sport journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi, Arsenal have contacted Nuno Espirito Santo about the possibility of replacing Unai Emery as the new manager at the club.

The agent of Nuno Espirito Santo is fellow Portuguese Jorge Mendes who has a good working relationship with Arsenal chief executive Raul Sanllehi.
Nuno Espirito Santo has done a very good job at Wolves whom he led to the Premier League from the English Championship at the start of last season.
He masterminded a seventh-placed finish for Wolves in their first season back in the top flight in the last campaign and that meant qualification for the Europa League.
Wolves are already through to the last 32 of the Europa League this season with one game to spare.
Arsenal will have to pay compensation to Wolves if they want to appoint Nuno Espirito Santo as their new manager.
