Over the last day or so, reports have started to emerge that Arsenal could be interested in Nuno Espirito Santo, who has been in charge of Wolverhampton Wanderers for the last two-and-a-half years.

The manager quickly became a favourite with the bookies, and the Daily Mail claimed Arsenal had “set their sights” on him to replace Unai Emery.

Tim Spiers of The Athletic claims multiple sources have denied there being any substance in the links though.

The journalist covers Wolverhampton Wanderers for his employers, and he says that whilst it would be a surprise if Arsenal weren’t at all interested in Santo, there’s nothing in the story just yet.

Spiers then made a point of reiterating how good Santo currently has it at Wolves, and that it would be a bit unexpected to see him give that up for another English club.

For now, it seems Arsenal are sticking by Emery anyway. The Spanish head coach is being given at least until after Thursday’s game against Eintracht Frankfurt. It’s hard to believe they’d then get rid of him if he successfully gets a result to qualify for the Europa League knockout stages, but you never know.
