EPL: Luis Enrique interested in taking over Arsenal for two reasons


Arsenal negotiator, Raul Sanllehi has held, advanced discussions with former Barcelona manager, Luis Enrique over the last few days.

L’Equipe reports that the Spaniard is interested in replacing 68-year-old manager because he appreciates the club’s philosophy and respects the values of the club.

If talks with Enrique fails to progress any further, the Gunners will approach their three alternative targets – Carlo Ancelotti, Patrick Vieira and Leonardo Jardim, the newspaper reports.

Reports in Spain earlier this week claimed that Enrique will look to bring veteran midfielder, Andres Iniesta with him to the Emirates if he is appointed Arsenal manager.

Wenger had earlier admitted that the timing of his decision to step down as Arsenal manager was forced upon him.

He said, “The timing was not really my decision. I do my job, keep my routine and focus on what I have to do every day. I prepare well for the game. I think it will be surreal for me when I don’t work. At the moment I work like ever.

“You’re never sure you do the right thing, but life is interesting because you have to deal with different kinds of situations. Until now, I had a life that was full of different experiences.

“Some were very difficult to deal with, but I always did it. That’s another one certainly I will face one day.”
