Arsenal have reportedly held discussions with former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique as a potential replacement for Unai Emery.

Emery has come under immense pressure in recent weeks following the Gunners' string of poor results in all competitions.

The north London club has picked just one win in six Premier League matches, with their 2-0 defeat to Leicester City on Saturday, November 9, leaving them sitting eight points off top four.

Goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison were enough to sink Arsenal at the King Power Stadium, with calls for the sacking of Emery renting the air.

Arsenal chiefs now appear to have bowed to pressure from fans to replace the Spaniard, with reports in Spain contending Enrique has already been contacted over the role.
