Former Liverpool boss in line to replace Arsene Wenger at the end of the season

Former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is being lined-up as a replacement for Arsene Wenger at the end of the season, according to reports from the Metro.

Arsenal are set to review long-serving manager Arsene Wenger’s position at the end of the season following his side’s dismal performance in the Carabao Cup final at the weekend.

The Gunners were rolled over 3-0 by an impressive Manchester City side thanks to goals from Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva.

And with Arsenal currently sat in sixth position in the Premier League and ten points off the top four, Arsene Wenger may be shown the door at The Emirates after over two decades at the helm of the club.

Should Wenger depart this summer, Brendan Rodgers is thought to be the board’s preferred candidate to take charge in North London.

Rodgers, who has previously managed in the Premier League with both Swansea City and Liverpool, is currently the head coach at Celtic.

Rodgers took charge of the Hoops in the summer 0f 2016, and last season guided his side to an historic treble, including an SPL title in which the club went unbeaten all season, winning 34 of their 38 league games, drawing the other four.

Arsene Wenger could yet salvage his Arsenal career yet again however if he can guide his side to a Europa League triumph.

The Gunners face AC Milan in the last-16 of the tournament, with the two sides meeting at the San Siro in just over a weeks time and again at The Emirates a week later.
