Paul Merson has suggested that Manuel Pellegrini could be a good candidate to take over from Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

It remains to be seen if Wenger will extend his current contract at Emirates Stadium before the summer of 2017, when it is due to expire.

There have inevitably been plenty of suggestions about who could take charge at Emirates Stadium once Wenger calls time on his spell at the north London club.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is set to be looking for a new club in the summer following the Citizens’ move to bring in Pep Guardiola at the end of the season.

And former Arsenal man Merson feels that Pellegrini could be a good fit for the north London club should Wenger leave the Gunners.

Merson is quoted as saying by HITC: “I honestly don’t know. The way he’s handled himself, I would say Pellegrini of Man City.

“He’s been a credit. I mean, he could go on to win all three trophies in England and he still got the sack.”

Arsenal, who drew 0-0 with Southampton on Tuesday, are currently preparing for their Premier League trip to Burnley on Sunday afternoon.
