Would Rodgers be a good fit for Arsenal?

If there were any doubts about Brendan Rodgers’ qualities as a coach, they have surely been dispelled during his current spell at Leicester City.

The are flying, and shouldn’t be ruled out as potential title contenders at this stage of the season. They may be some way behind , but if are being spoken about as still in the hunt, why shouldn’t Rodgers’ men as well?

Beyond that, Leicester currently have four players in Whoscored’s top 10 in the Premier League, and you can’t help feeling that Rodgers and his coaching has played some part in that.

On a personal level, Rodgers won a stunning seven trophies in three years at , and his points per game of 2.12 at Leicester, as per Transfermarkt, is hugely impressive.
