Arsenal are already making contingency plans for when Arsene Wenger eventually leaves the club, with Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola the man they want most of all. That’s according to Daily Mirror journalist John Cross, who supposedly said that the powers that be at the Gunners are of the mindset that Guardiola would make for a perfect successor to Wenger. The Spaniard doesn’t look likely to stay with Bayern and build a dynasty there, and he’s yet to conquer English football, so perhaps Arsenal would offer themselves to him well. That said, Wenger still reigns supreme in north London, and it can be assumed that he doesn’t want to leave anytime soon. Elsewhere Arsenal are worried that Alexis Sanchez may worsen a groin complaint while on international duty with Chile. The forward is heading into the break with said injury, but is adamant that he will feature in the two games Chile have to play. Given his current league form, we’d say that’s bad news.
