Jurgen Klopp would be the ideal replacement for Arsene Wenger

Published Add your comment

Jurgen Klopp is set to leave his post at Borussia Dortmund this summer after a season of disappointment at the Westfalenstadion.

Under Klopp Dortmund have achieved some great things - winning two league titles and reaching the Champions League final in 2013 where they were defeated by arch rivals Bayern Munich.

But with top tier European football next season beyond them, Klopp will depart for pastures new and it could result in a mass exodus given the respective ambitions of some of his current players.

Stars such as Ilkay Gungodan, Mats Hummels and Marco Reus have all been linked with moves to various clubs, many being from the Premier League. Klopp could even look to take some of these players with him to his new club should he take another position.

With Manuel Pellegrini's job seemingly hanging by a thread at the moment many would see this as the ideal opportunity for Manchester City to replace the Chilean manager. Most of the other top clubs in England already have a stable set up with managers in place for another season at the very least.

Arsenal are resurgent after last season's FA Cup win with Arsene Wenger at the helm, Chelsea have Jose Mourinho who could seemingly end his career at the club and Louis van Gaal and Brendan Rodgers will be given time to remould their respective squads.

As an Arsenal fan I would have loved for Klopp to take over at the Emirates Stadium but his departure from Dortmund has arrived at the wrong time. Wenger is contracted until 2017 and has, overall, had a good season.

Klopp's philosophy fits nicely with Arsenal's and there could always be the possibility of him replacing Wenger in the future, although the chances of that will depend on what happens this summer.

The only other option I can see for Klopp is Real Madrid if Manchester City manage to tempt Carlo Ancelotti away from the Bernabeu. Ancelotti may have won the Champions League last season, but Klopp's availability could force the hand of Florentino Perez.

Where do you think Klopp will go? Who would you like to see him manage next? Leave us your comments below.
