Next Arsenal Manager Odds

The times when Arsene Wenger was collecting trophies for Arsenal is well over, and for the Gunners, trophies have been harder to come by in recent seasons. Their chances of winning the Premier League are almost over right at the beginning of the new season and even now that Wenger left, there is no improvement. Wenger left the club at the end of 2017/18 season and was replaced by Unai Emery. The Spanish manager failed to make an impact and was sacked in late November 2019. 

Below you will find the latest odds on who is going to be appointed the next Arsenal Manager.

There has been a significant change in the next Arsenal manager odds following Arsenal’s defeat against Manchester City. Mikel Arteta has become the strong favourite to get the job at the Emirates as far as the bookmakers are concerned.

The Spaniard was once at 10/1 to be named Unai Emery’s permanent replacement but overnight there have been photos on Twitter showing Arsenal managing director Vinai Venkatesham and the club lawyer Huss Fahmy leaving Arteta’s house at 1am on Monday morning. Clearly, things are moving fast after the board decided that Freddie Ljungberg is not ready to lead the club permanently having picked up just one win since he took the temporary position. The 3-0 defeat against City seems to have pushed the clubs to make decisive steps forward to address the managerial situation.

Arteta, who ended his playing career with Arsenal, is currently assisting Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. He has been part of the two titles won with City. An Arsenal internal source told exclusively to BTFY this afternoon: ‘Initially, he appeared to be unhappy with a mid-season move, but he has since changed his mind when the management told him that they would have to find another permanent manager to try saving the season. The contract should be signed in the next few hours with Arteta that has requested some guarantees in the transfer market already for the January session to address issues in defence.’

It will not be an easy task for Arteta at Arsenal. He will take over a side who are currently sitting in ninth position in the table having won just five from their first 17 Premier League matches of the season. Not everything is lost tough for the Gunners who are just seven points off Chelsea who occupy the fourth place in the Premier League.

Arsenal are 17/1 with Betfair to end the season in the top four.
