Brendan Rodgers: Arsenal make contact with Leicester City boss

- Brendan Rodgers could be named as Arsenal next manager

- The Gunners are in search of a new manager after sacking Unai Emery last month

- They have now contacted the Foxes boss to step up their interest in the manager

Arsenal have reportedly stepped up their chase to lure Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers to Emirates Stadium.

The north Londoners fired their manager Unai Emery last month after about one and a half year in charge of the club.

Club legend Freddie Ljungberg took charge of the Gunners 2-2 draw at Carrow Road against Norwich City on Sunday.

But the club is still hoping to name a substantial manager in a matter of days as they are hoping to revive their chances of finishing among top four this season.
