Reports: Arsenal Identify Arsene Wenger Replacement

With long-serving manager Arsene Wenger set to leave Arsenal at the end of the season, the Gunners have now reportedly identified the Frenchman's potential replacement.

Report: Arsenal's Six-Man Shortlist To Replace Wenger Revealed

It was announced last week that Wenger will no longer be the Gunners' boss after the current campaign, following 22 years at the club.

While his departure has been greeted with great sentiment, many feel the 68-year-old overstayed his welcome at the club, with whom he last won the Premier League in 2004.

One of the major talking points since the announcement is who Arsenal's next manager will be, and according to the Daily Mirror, the club apparently feels they have a chance of luring former FC Barcelona boss Luis Enrique to England.

The Spaniard was among the candidates to replace Wenger even before it was known the Frenchman would be leaving.

The Gunners apparently believe their head of football relations, Raul Sanllehi, who worked as director of football at Barca when Enrique was boss, could help them convince the Spaniard to take the job.

Enrique won nine trophies as manager of the Blaugrana, including two LaLiga titles and the UEFA Champions League.

Luis Enrique is much switable for the "Gunners" than Carlo Cowcelloti because of the style they play or approach the game
