As part of his new deal that sees him remain in charge of Arsenal for the next two seasons, Arsene Wenger has been instructed to find a successor who would replace him when the time finally comes.
There is hope among the Gunner’s hierarchy that Wenger would step up into a director of football position when his current deal expires, and Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe has been identified as the man that would replace the French man as manager.
Howe is one of the most forward thinking and innovative managers in English football and has been seen by many as a future great manager. He has taken Bournemouth from the brink of administration in the football league to a top half finish this season in the English top flight.
His team plays an attacking brand of football that is similar to that which Wenger’s team plays, and the Gunners believe it would be easy for their players to adjust to Howe’s style of play.
However, the Gunners are currently focused on renewing the contract of their star players, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil. Sanchez has reportedly been offered a new deal worth £270,000 plus add-ons, while Ozil has been offered £220,000 per week plus add-ons, they hope that they would sign on so that they can focus on preparations for next season.
