Arsene Wenger’s days at Arsenal have already reached the end as he officially announced on Friday that he will leave the club at the end of the season.
The Frenchman has been at Arsenal since 1996 but it is now 14 years for former Monaco boss without smelling the Premier League title.
But, the North-London side need an experienced manager, as the Gunners chiefs have insisted that they want to build a new Arsenal since next season.
The Frenchman will leave this summer, so, who will replace him at the helm?
Now, let’s take a look at Arsenal’s list of potential managers who could replace Wenger as the Gunners manager.
8. Patrick Vieira
Patrick Vieira is said to be a potential replacement for his former manager Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager, although the Frenchman has conceded that he is happy at New York City FC.
The former Gunners captain won three Premier League titles at the Emirates Stadium under French manager Wenger.
“I spent nine years at Arsenal which makes the club really special for me,” Vieira told New York radio station WNYE.
“But that is not enough to coach the team.”
7. Brendan Rodgers
Good news, Celtic fans!
“I’m extremely happy here and I’ve got three years left on my contract.”

Rodgers might be a surprise candidate on this list. The North Irishman has failed at Liverpool, having managed the Reds for four seasons but won nothing with the side.
However, the current Celtic boss is reportedly on the Arsenal’s wish-list. Will he be successful at the Gunners? Time will tell us.
6. Mikel Arteta
While other managers have been head coaches somewhere, Mikel Arteta has only been an assistant coach since July 2016.
The Spaniard joined Manchester City as a joint assistant coach immediately after his retirement from football.
He has been Arsenal captain since Thomas Vermaelen left the club in 2014 for Barcelona. Therefore, he really knows the club and he could change things at the Emirates Stadium.
5. Carlo Ancelotti
Carlo Ancelotti might be one of the best candidates for the Gunners. He is one of the experienced managers on this list as he managed big clubs in Europe. And he is the only manager to have won the UEFA Champions League trophy three times in two different clubs.
The Gunners need the Italian boss at this point if they need someone to win some titles for them.
