Also, Manchester United’s transfer targets discussed, why Antonio Conte is the only man for Chelsea and how Rafael Benitez won’t change a thing at Newcastle.

Emery could be the man to save Arsenal
In terms of big name managers, Laurent Blanc and Massimiliano Allegri easily come to mind. Don’t see those happening, though.
At the same time, I doubt it would be a good idea to try and go with another “Wenger” – another relative unknown who turns out to be brilliant. The romantic option would be a certain club hero who recently got his coaching badge, but therein lies the problem: he recently got his coaching badge and has literally no experience.
Here’s an interesting option I just thought of: what about Unai Emery? I’ve always liked the teams his been in charge of. They have the mental ingredients that this Arsenal team lack sometimes and given the extra resources at his disposal, he could prove to be another Pochettino.
