Arsene Wenger's contract expires at the end of the season and many think this could be his final season at the Emirates but who replaces him?
Earlier this season, Wenger celebrated 20 years as Arsenal coach and despite a lack of sustained title challenge in recent years, the Frenchman's legacy is not in doubt especially in his preparation and approach to matches and his ability to blood youngsters.
Just like Manchester United have shown with the inability to cope with Ferguon's departure in 2013, replacing a long time figurehead isn't a day's job.
However like Thomas Tuchel is showing at Dortmund after replacing Jurgen Klopp, taking over from a legend can be managed well. Here are four managers who could easily replace Wenger;
1. Ralph Hasenhuttl
RB Leipzeg coach has done a remarkable job in taking his side from Bundesliga B to top of the League after promotion. Hasenhuttl has all but confirmed that he is in line to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager at the end of the season.
Speaking at a press conference, the Austrian tactician, 49 confirmed a story by the SUn UK that claims he would be the man to replace Wenger.
Seems the Arsenal heirachy see him as Wenger's replacement.
2. Thomas Tuchel
Tuchel replaced Jurgen Klopp at Dortmund in 2015 and has done an amazing job. He is leading a young Dortmund team and his peers have called him (alongside Antonio Conte and Pep Guardiola) as the best tacticians in the business presently.
He has already said he would not stay for too long at the former Champions League winner and a move would interest him.
3. Eddie Howe
The media have already linked Howe to the Arsenal post in recent months and it seems the Gunners have contacted the Englishman who is in charge of Bournemouth.
He ticks a lot of boxes; English, loves to play attacking football and promotes young players. However he needs to do better at the Cherries to be considered a top level coach.
4. Unai Emery
The current PSG boss might be having a hard time in France but his time at Sevilla showed his great tactical acumen especially in the Europa League where he won three consecutive Europa League titles.
Managing a powerhouse in PSG has proven difficult but he is good enough for the Gunners. Like Howe he ticks many boxes; loves young players, encourages 4 - 2 - 3 - 1 Arsenal have utilized in recent seasons and has European winning experience.
