Following the departure of Unai Emery on Friday, former Arsenal striker Charlie Nichols has urged the Gunners to appoint Leicester City's Brendan Rodgers.
Following a 2-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Europa League, Emery was relieved of his duties on Friday just after 18 months in charge in London.
A number of names have already been linked with the vacant role at the Emirates Stadium, but Nichols feels the Gunners need to get proper leadership and get Rodgers.
When asked by Sky Sports who should replace Emery, Nicholas said, "The guy I said before Unai Emery got it was Brendan Rodgers.
“He makes players better. He makes average players better technically, he makes them mentally more aware.
“It’s not just that you can see that at Leicester currently. Everybody used to say ‘he’s won trophies at Celtic and it’s easy’. Of course it’s easy, but he did it with style.
“He took a few hammerings in Europe but can anyone honestly point the finger at Leicester at the moment and say he hasn’t improved just about every player there? It’s what he does.
“People talk about egos, I don’t care. He has earned the right to have a big ego and, for me, to be the next Arsenal manager before we miss out on him.
“We might even get to the stage where Brendan Rodgers goes ‘why would I want to go to Arsenal right now?’ Are Manchester not interested in him? Are other clubs not interested in him?
“Arsenal need to get a bit of leadership and togetherness now. If they are really serious about moving this forward and it on, then they must get Rodgers.”
