Latest rumours have linked former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho with the job at Emirates Stadium.
Following reports from Spain earlier this week, journalist Duncan Castles has now claimed that the Gunners have approached the Portuguese manager via a third party to replace Arsene Wenger at the club.
He writes for One World Sports: “Jose Mourinho is considering an approach to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.
“Mourinho was approached by a third party claiming to represent Arsenal at the beginning of this month, following successive losses to severely understrength Manchester United and Swansea City sides.
“The former Chelsea manager was asked if he would be interested in working at Arsenal should Wenger’s position be made vacant, and to hold off on making a decision on other offers until May.”
It’s no secret that Arsenal fans have never liked Mourinho, so the news was understandably divisive for the Gooners.
What sort of sweet mary jane would you have to smoke to actually think that Mourinho could ever manage Arsenal. Honestly.

I’m offering odds of 1,000,000/1 that Jose Mourinho will ever manage Arsenal.

And by the way, Arsenal will never appoint Jose Mourinho. They love Wenger over there.

Ian Wright: “If he [Jose Mourinho] went to Arsenal, it wouldn’t be something that I would be against. I can’t see it ever happening though.”

Replace the words “Mourinho at Arsenal” with “Arsenal to win the title” https://t.co/R3n0aPriO3

If you want Mourinho at Arsenal please go and support another club. You’re not wanted here.

Arsenal fans who wouldn’t take Mourinho are mad.
I can’t stick the bloke but he’d win trophies and erase the “4th place” mentality.

Mourinho represents everything Arsenal the club, what it stands for doesn’t represent.

Mourinho to Arsenal would be the perfect storm. Not sure if the world could handle that. #BPL

Mourinho would be a disaster at Arsenal. He was well and truly found out last season. Not just that, his behaviour was disgraceful.
