According to reports, Roberto Mancini wants to replace Arsene Wenger as manager of Arsenal.

Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol says taking over at The Emirates is a job the former Manchester City boss ‘has always wanted’.

Mancini, who is currently the manager of Zenit St Petersburg appears to be the front runner to replace Slaven Bilic at West Ham. Like Arsenal, the Hammers have made a poor start to the season and Bilic has just been provided the ominous vote of confidence by the Hammers hierarchy.

Mancini was sacked as City boss in 2013, a year after delivering the club’s first Premier League triumph. The Italian has gone on to have brief spells at Galatasaray and Inter Milan before taking over the Russian outfit in June.

Other managers to be linked with the Arsenal job include Eddie Howe, Ralph Hasenhuttl, Massimiliano Allegri and  Thomas Tuchel.

Gooners, would you take Mancini over Wenger? Or do you have someone else in mind? Let us know in the comments…
