Arsene Wenger’s future at Arsenal was thrown into further doubt yesterday after a 2-1 defeat to Brighton left the Gunners 13 points adrift of the Premier League’s top-four, handing a huge blow to the club’s Champions League hopes.
The loss also marked four consecutive defeats for Arsenal across all competition, whilst the north London side have also lost five of their last six- a major concern heading into Thursday’s crunch Europa League tie against AC Milan.
Speculation that Arsenal will move away from the French boss is increasing but it’s unlikely that it will be the end of Wenger’s managerial career, as The Daily Star states Everton are considering the experienced boss as their next manager.
68-year-old Wenger is considered by Toffees owner Farhad Moshiri, who previously held a stake in Arsenal, as the ideal candidate to replace Sam Allardyce- with the former England boss suffering his sixth consecutive away defeat.
Everton have shown desire in the transfer market with plenty of activity over the course of the past 12 months but have struggled to provide an impact on the field, where they hover in mid-table.
