Arsenal 'earmark' Brendan Rodgers as their next manager and send club officials to scout him

Crystal Palace v Leicester City - Premier League

Unai Emery is under pressure at Arsenal

In fact, if certain reports are to be believed, defeat to Leicester could see him sacked before the international break and rather ironically, the club will not be looking far for his replacement.

According to The Sun, Arsenal officials will be in attendance at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening, scouting Brendan Rodgers. 

The Gunners are said to be huge admirers of the Northern Irishman's progressive, attractive style of football and have earmarked him as their next manager. 

No doubt, the supporters will be excited to hear that as many are desperate to see Emery's chaotic reign at the Emirates come to an end.

The report goes on to say that if Leicester do hand their opponents another defeat tomorrow, then we can expect more behind-the-scenes chat about a potential offer coming through. 

GIVEMESPORT'S Ollie Browning says:

Arsenal are seriously struggling this season. After an exciting summer that saw a number of big names arrive, the north London club just haven't delivered. 

They're on a bad run, with one win in their last five Premier League games. Wednesday's Europa League draw against Vitoria hasn't helped things either. 

Arsenal are on a bad run of form

Throw in the Granit Xhaka situation and it seems the fanbase could turn toxic at any moment. 

Arsenal's situation right now is the polar opposite to that of Leicester. 

Rodgers has led the Foxes to third in the table and they're currently just two points behind Manchester City. 

Rodgers is impressing at Leicester

Last month, he masterminded a record-breaking 9-0 win away to Southampton, which proved that his team can be absolutely ruthless. 

It's no surprise that Arsenal are big admirers of Rodgers and should they come calling, it will be tough for him to turn down a move.
