Arsenal: Potential Wenger replacements

There has been mixed emotions for Arsenal fans across the globe this summer.

Lots of fans remain optimistic that manager Arsene Wenger will use some magic to sign big names. However, after a range of targets were flushed away, many of the Gunners' faithful are very frustrated with the manager for not signing anyone 'world class'.

Arsenal were heavily linked with a move for Luis Suarez who proved last season he is one of the world's best. But Arsene Wenger was reluctant to pay the £55million required for him to join.

After eight years of being trophy-less, you can understand the Arsenal fans' frustration and surely there needs to be  change in either Wenger's transfer tactics or a new face to make the decisions.

On the other hand, it could be argued that what Wenger brought to the club could not be replaced; going unbeaten for 49 games and winning doubles more than once. But with Arsene Wenger, Arsenal are struggling to move forward anytime soon.

Wenger has not adapted to the modern game which involves a high amount of money; it is not just football anymore, it is a business. Further targets that were flushed away include: Luiz Gustavo, Gonzalo Higuain, Mario Gotze, Stevan Jovetic, David Villa and the list goes on.

There are only three managers that would improve Arsenal Football Club in terms of success, in my opinion. 

The first manager brought success in his small reign at Chelsea and would be a great replacement in Wenger was to go.

Roberto Di Matteo would not be afraid to spend but also he will spend it on positions that need improving. We can all see that Arsenal are lacking a world class keeper which all successful clubs need.

Just look at Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Barcelona, Real Madrid, FC Bayern and Dortmund. All successful teams which have a top keeper. Di Matteo could easily spend the money where it is most needed; possibly a move for unsettled Real Madrid keeper, Iker Casillas.

The second manager has brought in some bargains since he has been in the Premier League and could easily sell them on for 10 times more. Michael Laudrup is the next candidate; he brought in Michu for a small fee and now the striker is being priced at £30million. The majority of fans in the Premier League had never heard of Michu but now he is on everyone's lips this transfer window.

Michael Laudrup won the Capital One Cup against the team who beat Arsenal. Bradford City won against the Gunners on penalties and Arsenal were mocked once again in their ongoing trophy-less saga. A match which could of and should of easily been won by Arsenal; but Arsene Wenger took the game easy which lead to their loss.

Michael Laudrup's Swansea performed like one would expect from a Premier League club, beating Bradford in the final and winning a trophy for themselves. Laudrup has proved he can be successful with a team who were in the Championship a few years back, imagine what he could bring to a Champions League club like Arsenal.

The third manager that could replace Arsene Wenger would be a crowd favourite. Borussia Dortmund manager Jürgen Klopp would be strong favourite to take charge of the Gunners as he is very experienced at top level football and will not be shy to spend the money required for top players.

Klopp could bring in forwards Robert Lewandowski and Marco Reus and improve the defence with a move for Mats Hummels; all Dortmund players. Again a move for a top class keeper would be possible with Klopp as boss with either a move for Casillas or Roman Weidenfeller, another Dortmund player.

All of these managers could bring success to Arsenal again, they all have adapted to the modern game involving money weather there be a lot or little funds available. All the managers have proved they can win trophies which would be a target for Arsenal Football Club if a new manager was to come in.

With only four days remaining in the transfer window, Arsene Wenger will have to prove that he can bring in the top players and prove this season his team can be successful with him there.
