Europa League finalists Arsenal are still in the process of finding a new permanent manager to take over from the sacked Unai Emery, and Mauricio Pochettino is one name that has been seriously linked with the job.
The former Tottenham Hotspur manager has finally responded to the speculation linking him with the Arsenal job as the former Argentine national player said that he would be open to taking up the role despite his ties with North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Mauricio Pochettino lost his job as the Spurs manager last month after the poor start made by his team this season.

He was sacked five months plus on from the Champions League final which the Argentine tactician masterminded.
Pochettino led Spurs to the Champions League final for the first time in their history but they were unable to go one better after the 2-0 defeat to eventual champions Liverpool in the final.
The Arsenal job became vacant some days after his sacking as the Spurs manager as Unai Emery ended his association with the Gunners after just 18 months.
Unai Emery led the North Londoners to a run of seven games without a single victory in all competitions and that led to his dismissal as the Arsenal boss.
