Arsenal’s managerial position may have been solved for the next two years following Arsene Wenger’s contract extension at the end of last season but that hasn’t stopped links suggesting big names could come into North London.

The Gunners have endured a difficult start to the Premier League season, losing two of their opening three matches, and also experienced a difficult end to the transfer window as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was snatched by Liverpool, Alexis Sanchez came close to joining Manchester City and Wenger’s side failed to land Thomas Lemar from Monaco.

That has left many Arsenal fans continuing to express their anger at Wenger, demanding that changes need to be made, although it’s difficult to predict what the reaction of some supporters would be given the latest name to be mentioned.

Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol has claimed that former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini, now at Russian side Zenit St. Petersburg, has always been keen on managing Arsenal- although the position is unlikely to become available anytime soon.

The Italian boss could return to the Premier League imminently as he continues to be linked with West Ham, who are growing frustrated with manager Slaven Bilic.
