The often reliable BBC are now reporting that the Arsenal board appears to be gradually changing its stance on Unai Emery after picking out a possible replacement for the Spaniard.

Arsenal were expected to improve this season after spending a record amount of money during the summer transfer window, even though there was no Champions League football to offer to new signings.

Unai Emery has struggled to keep his side in the race for a top four finish this season and the last two months of results in the Premier League have been very worrying.

Thus, BBC are now reporting that the Gunners have already picked out Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo as a potential replacement for Unai Emery if the Spaniard is indeed sacked.

The report states that the 45-year-old is being considered as the main choice to take over, in the event of a new manager being needed.

Wolves’ manager has done a magnificent job of not just keeping his side in the Premier League but also posing a threat to the top six sides, but some may wonder whether he has the adequate experience to manage the Gunners.

There had been all kinds of rumours about Emery’s future this week, but with the highly reputable BBC now making their own claim, it appears as though Emery’s fate could soon be decided.
