Luis Enrique seemed well placed to take over the Arsenal hot-seat from Arsene Wenger, however, the north London club have discarded the former Barcelona man as an option because of his high salary demands. Wenger leaves the club after 22 years in charge, and now the onus is on Arsenal to get the right man in to replace him.
According to the 'Daily Mirror,' the Gunners are not willing to pay big money for their new coach, especially after not qualifying for the Champions League in 2018/19.
No Enrique means that there are five left on the list of possible coaches that Arsenal want to present to Stan Kroenke, the majority shareholder, and the goal is to introduce him before the World Cup.
Patrick Vieira and Mikel Arteta are two disciples of Wenger who would offer continuity at the club, despite a relative lack of experience at the top level. The other names being considered are headed by 'Max' Allegri, however, Juventus are preparing to renew their coach with an improved contract. Arsenal have also sounded out, albeit with less vigour, Joachim Low, Julian Nagelsmann and Leonardo Jardim.
