Arsenal legend, Ray Parlour has tipped Diego Simeone to succeed Arsene Wenger as Gunners boss hints at exit.
The former Arsenal player believes the current Atletico Madrid manager is the favourite to replace the Frenchman at the Emirates.
“The favourite would be Simeone. He demands out of his players and he’s a bit more defensive minded. But he is Atletico Madrid manager.
“It’s a situation where you don’t know. Who’s available? Who’s available at that time of their reign?
“You’ve always got to assess the situation that season.
“It won’t be easy to find a new manager because the Guardiolas and the Mourinhos have long-term contracts now.
“Ronald Koeman would have been a good spot but Everton have got him now which is great for them. They should do well.
Wenger is under more pressure than ever this season as his 12-year Premier League title wait goes on.
Manchester United and Manchester City have spent a mammoth combined total of £318.6m on new signings this summer while Arsene Wenger is only interested in buying a ‘superstar’ striker as he targets Robert Lewandowski and Antoine Griezmann
Parlour, who played under the Frenchman for eight years, says it is the fans who the long-standing Arsenal gaffer must please, not the board.
He added: “The fans want silverware. If we start losing games the fans will be on their backs asking ‘where are the signings? Why didn’t we strengthen?’
