Arsenal seem to be preparing to make changes this summer after a woeful run of form has left the Gunners enduring four defeats in their last five matches, including back-to-back 3-0 defeats to Manchester City.

Arsene Wenger’s side have suffered an early exit in the FA Cup, lost the Carabao Cup final and now find themselves ten points behind the top-four with ten matches left to play, leaving Europa League glory as the only real avenue for a return to the Champions League.

With fans calling for the Frenchman’s head, it’s increasingly likely that Wenger’s long-term association with Arsenal will be brought to an end this summer and reports indicate that the north London side have identified another potential successor.

The Daily StarĀ states that Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann is being considered as a replacement for Wenger, with the 30-year-old catching the eye with his impressive leadership of the Bundesliga side in recent seasons.

Nagelsmann excelled in his first full season with Hoffenheim last year, leading them to a fourth placed finish in the Bundesliga but losing to Liverpool in the Champions League play-offs, and his side currently sit ninth in the table.

However, they lost a number of key players ahead of the new season, including Niklas Sule to league leaders Bayern Munich.
