Metro certainly have Arsenal fans looking up from their pints here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Gunners are eyeing up Pep Guardiola as the ideal replacement for Arsene Wenger.
Not only that but the deal would see Wenger moving upstairs to the boardroom, not being ousted from the club entirely.
We certainly think that Pep might have something to say about that given he would ideally want total control and having a former manager who had managed the club for so long still there might not be ideal.
As our regulars note, Pep is of course currently at Bayern Munich and has one of the very best squads in the world.
We are certainly doubtful that he would want to leave that project so soon after joining and not having made his mark in Europe with the Bavarians either.
However, the opportunity of a huge challenge at Arsenal could well tempt him and the likes of Jose Mourinho certainly would not be able to say that he only picks sides with great squads to manage!
Arsenal fans. Is it time for Wenger to go? Would you like to replace him with Pep? Let us know your thoughts below.
