Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit has named three candidates for the Arsenal job if Arsene Wenger does leave.

Wenger has received severe criticism from fans this season due to the team’s failure to challenge for the Premier League title.

And with some already linking the Frenchman with a departure, Petit has picked out three men who are capable of replacing the Gunners boss.

“Massimo Allegri and Diego Simeone would both be good and there are also rumours in France about the Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim, who is very highly rated.” the ex-Gunner said

“He has done well in the Champions League and in bringing through the young talent, whilst still winning titles.

“Allegri has set records at Juventus and I am a big fan of Simeone for what he has done at Atletico over the past four years but I really like Jardim as well.

“A lot of managers will come and be able to manage Arsenal, but I really want Arsene to stay.”
