Arsenal find themselves at a crossroads once again and it seems it may finally be time for the Gunners to make the decision to move away from Arsene Wenger, after a woeful run of form in 2018.

The north London side have sensationally already lost seven matches since the turn of the year, including four of their last five games in all competitions- the latest of which to Manchester City leaves them ten points adrift in the chase for a top-four finish.

Speculation on the future of Arsenal and Wenger has risen significantly, with a number of names being touted as potential replacements for the French boss.

One of those floating around is that of Gunners legend Thierry Henry, who has previously admitted it would be a ‘dream’ to manage the side where he became the club’s highest all-time scorer during his successful career.

Despite a lack of managerial experience, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, who worked with Henry at Barcelona, has given his backing to the former forward. Speaking after Thursday’s 3-0 win at the Emirates Stadium, he said:

“If he wants to be manager, he has the talent to do it. But he has to decide, not me.”

Henry isn’t the only candidate reported to be in the running though as Arsenal have reportedly eyed the likes of Celtic’s Brendan Rodgers, former Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti, Monaco’s Leonardo Jardim and Germany’s World Cup winning boss Joachim Lowe.
