Arsenal have added Wolves manager Nuno Espírito Santo to the list of managers to replace current boss Unai Emery, who has failed to steady the ship in recent weeks.

According to Charles Watts of GOAL, the Arsenal staff are now simply waiting for the sacking to be official.

Arsenal are winless in six games in all competitions and a five-match winless run in the Premier League saw them drop to eighth in the standings, with disillusioned fans constantly voicing their displeasure over their failure to win.

With Champions League football also looking unlikely next season, Arsenal will need to make a very convincing offer to make sure the striker stays put.

In this one game against Southampton, I think in some ways it nearly sums up the 18 months of Emery at Arsenal, really.

It has been suggested that Freddie Ljungberg or Steve Bould could take up an interim management position until a suitable replacement is found.

Arsenal's 2-2 draw with struggling Southampton on Saturday left them eight points adrift of the top four and 19 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Arsenal legend Tony Adams says fans were right to boo his former club, admitting it was a bad performance, as he casually suggested there was no way forward under Unai Emery anymore.

With Mauricio Pochettino already sacked by rivals Tottenham, the Gunners faithful want to get rid of "clueless" Unai Emery. "When I lost, I am not feeling well", he went on.

UNAI EMERY has urged Arsenal fans to focus their passion on opponents, claiming visiting teams are now "fearless" when they come to the Emirates.

Daichi Kamada of Eintracht Frankfurt celebrates with teammates Filip Kostic and Djibril Sow of Eintracht Frankfurt after scoring his team's first goal during the UEFA Europa League group F match between Arsenal FC and Eintracht Frankfurt at Emirates Stadium on November 28, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.

Gabriel Martinelli, who has impressed in his early days as an Arsenal player, will lead the line against Eintracht Frankfurt, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette coming on from the bench later in the second half, if needed.

"We know our supporters were disappointed by the draw against Southampton, but we have the flawless chance to reconnect with our supporters". "We need the time managing different situations".
