Monaco boss open to Arsenal job?

Jardim could replace Wenger at the helm

AS Monaco head coach Leonardo Jardim has been reported as a potential successor to manager Arsene Wenger after he admitted his desire to manage in the Premier League.

The 42-year-old has done wonders with the Principality outfit since taking over the club nearly three years ago.

Monaco currently find themselves leading the French Ligue 1 whilst their Champions League hopes are still alive with a thrilling last 16, first-leg tie against Manchester City on Tuesday night.

Jardim has managed to form an impressive squad via Monaco's youth recruitment policy, and he has now hinted that he would like to progress his coaching career further in England.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is yet to commit to a fresh two-year deal, and there are still suggestions that he could leave at the expiry of his contract in the summer.

Borussia Dortmund's Thomas Tuchel and Barcelona's Luis Enrique are also among the long list of managers associated with the Arsenal job.
