Luis Enrique will ask for £200m transfer budget if the Spanish coach replaces Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that Enrique is the favourite to take over the reins from Wenger at the end of the 2017-18 season.

The same article states the Spanish head coach will overhaul the Gunners squad if he is given the chance to replace Wenger.

Indeed, Enrique will look to make improvements in goal, in defence and in midfield but the the 47-year-old is satisfied with the north London side’s attacking options.

According to The Sun, the former FC Barcelona head coach will demand £200m to make big improvements to the Arsenal squad.

Enrique hasn’t returned to management since standing down as FC Barcelona boss following the 2016-17 campaign.

The 47-year-old led FC Barcelona to three La Liga crowns, three Copa del Rey trophies and the Champions League during his reign.

Arsenal drew 1-1 with La Liga giants Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.

The Gunners are in sixth place in the Premier League table and a long way behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
