When Mikel Arteta was appointed as first-team manager of Arsenal FC on 20 December 2019, there was a general feeling of optimism among the supporters who had grown tired of Unai Emery’s regime and the Spaniard began by making his Gunners team tough to beat in the Premier League before steering them to an unlikely FA Cup triumph later in the season.
However, the 2020/21 season has not turned out particularly well for someone who was previously assistant manager to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, with Arteta recently coming off worse when squaring off against his predecessor Unai Emery in the Europa League and the team continues to be without an identity despite the bright performances of Bukayo Saka and Emil Smith Rowe on a consistent basis.
Arsenal could be the subject of a takeover this summer and it will be interesting to see what might happen should Daniel Ek take charge of the north London club. It’s often the case that this leads to the new owner wanting to install his own manager in charge of the team and it’s hardly as if Arteta has been pulling up any trees.
The Spaniard claimed he wanted to “deliver passion and energy into the football club” upon taking over, although the 38-year-old has regularly been among the favourites on the Premier League Sack Race betting market and there is plenty of speculation as to who might replace him at the Emirates Stadium.

Would Brendan Rodgers Leave Leicester For Gunners?
Either side of that incredible 2015/16 Premier League title victory, it’s easy to remember that Leicester City were largely a struggling club in the top-flight who had tremendous difficulty staying afloat on a number of occasions, with Nigel Pearson, Craig Shakespeare and Claude Puel among the managers who took charge of the Foxes.
However, the Brendan Rodgers era at the King Power Stadium has provided no such problems and it’s massively telling that Leicester’s narrow failure to miss out on a top four spot in the top flight last season was regarded as a disappointment considering that it was only a few years ago that it would have been regarded as miraculous.
Rodgers is clearly one of the most talented British managers in the professional game at the moment, with his Leicester team once again riding high in the Premier League table this season and City actually claimed a 1-0 victory at the Emirates earlier this season, with the team currently on course to play in next season's Champions League.
Perhaps there would be no enticing the 47-year-old away from his current position at the King Power Stadium, although it would be interesting to see how he’d react to an approach from Arsenal who would clearly love someone to transform their fortunes right now and he would ultimately inherit a more talented squad should he join the Gunners.
Rodgers is trading at odds of 3/1 to become the next Arsenal FC manager and it shouldn’t be forgotten that he left Celtic fairly abruptly to take the managerial opportunity at Leicester, with the Northern Irishman having previously been in charge at Liverpool FC so he understands the pressures that go with this sort of position.

Could Vieira Be Another Ex-Arsenal Player Given a Chance?
The appointment of Patrick Vieira - 10/1 with Paddy Power - might appear to some like a case of “out of the frying pan, into the fire” considering that Arsenal FC have taken a punt on an ex-player and things aren’t going well, with Vieira another relatively unproven candidate who could be anything between brilliant and terrible at the north London club.
Vieira is truly a club legend at the north London outfit and the ‘man from Senegal’ has previously made noises about wanting to be the manager of Arsenal FC at some point in his career, with the former midfielder is currently a free agent after parting company with Nice earlier this year.
Indeed, the 44-year-old might actually not be deemed good enough to take the potentially-soon-to-be vacant position considering that he was sacked by the Ligue 1 club following a succession of defeats and the club’s exit from the Europa League, with Arsenal surely keen to find an appointment with a stronger track record considering a safer pair of hands might be needed after Arteta.
Next Premier League Team Manager Odds
Simeone Would Be the Supporters’ Selection
Diego Simeone can rightly be regarded as one of the world’s best managers right now, with the Argentine having been in charge at Atletico Madrid since 2011 and he has elevated the Spanish club to an outfit who are capable of challenging for domestic and European honours over the past decade.
Simeone favours a low-possession and defensive style of football although you can’t argue with the results and that’s especially the case in the 2020/21 season where Atleti currently sit top of La Liga and they’re trading as the favourites on the outright market, with only a handful of goals conceded thus far.
If Diego Simeone was interested in taking charge at the Emirates Stadium, then we might expect his betting odds of 10/1 to be considerably shorter, although the 50-year-old has been linked to lots of other high-profile European clubs over the past few years although one wonders if he will ever leave the Wanda Metropolitano.
Simeone has proved that he’s capable of succeeding with different personnel considering that players such as Diego Godin, Antoine Griezmann and Thibaut Courtois have all left the club to no ill-effect, with Arsenal potentially wanting a manager who produces an attractive style of football.
Henry Making an Impact at Montreal
Thierry Henry cut his teeth as the Belgium assistant manager under Roberto Martinez before taking charge of Monaco, with the Arsenal legend now taking charge of Montreal Impact in the MLS, although it appears as though the Frenchman hasn’t quite amassed the requisite experience to take a high-profile position at the Emirates Stadium.
There’s little doubt that Henry would love to follow in the footsteps of his manager Arsene Wenger and establish a legacy at the north London club, although odds of 22/1 reflect the fact that he is likely to be passed over in favour of someone who has more experience.

Gasperini Could Be An Interesting Contender
Gian Piero Gasperini isn’t particularly well-known outside his native Italy, although the 62-year-old has been highly acclaimed due to his achievement in charge of Atalanta, with the team having risen to become one of the leading teams in Serie A and they recently claimed a victory at Liverpool in the Champions League.
Gasperini has been in charge at the Bergamo club since 2016 and perhaps he would find the prospect of managing in England as an attractive one, although like Allegri, he has never coached outside of his homeland. The manager has come a long way since starting out at Crotone in 2003 although perhaps it would be a risky appointment.
Nevertheless, Atalanta have earned rave reviews for their attractive brand of football and their high-scoring ways are in stark contrast to the scarcity of goals being scored by the Gunners right now, with this being a left-field selection which might just work out well.
