With Arsene Wenger not getting any younger, talk of who will take over at Arsenal when he retires is already starting to hot up and the latest manager being linked with us is Carlo Ancellotti.

The former Chelsea manager has reportedly made it known that he would like a return to the Premier League and although he’s also being linked with the Manchester City job, there’s talk of him wanting to come back to London.

The manager enjoyed quite a bit of success at Chelsea, winning them their first Premier League and FA Cup double but is he the type of manager Arsenal would want?

We all know that when Wenger does pack his bags (and shuffle upstairs to the boardroom) it’s going to take someone big to fill his shoes. Although Ancelotti would be an adequate replacement, I’m not sure he’s our ‘type’ of manager. Chelsea and Arsenal are run in very different ways and although he’s managed in the Premier League before, we’re a contrasting club to the Blues.

Saying this, I’m sure whoever we appoint will be good enough.

They have to be.
