A string of bad results have put Emery on the hot seat, as the Spaniard’s ability to guide the team becoming questionable.

Unai Emery has clearly lost the plot and Arsenal fans will be thrilled to hear the new name connected to the Gunners bench.

Club’s sporting director, Raul Sanllehi, contacted Luis Enrique personally, according to reports from Sport.

However, the situation is still uncertain with Enrique. The manager stepped down as the Spanish national team manager recently due to the death of his daughter.

Arsenal need an impulse after six consecutive winless matches.

The Gunners are sitting at sixth, tied with Sheffield United at 17 points.

Lucho was already a candidate for the Arsenal bench after Wenger’s departure. Despite that, Emery earned a nod ahead of former Barcelona manager.

However, Emery might be given some time to perhaps steady the ship given the fact that there aren’t a lot of options out there a the moment.
