Luis Enrique is set to miss out on the Arsenal role after his wage demands priced him out of a potential appointment at The Emirates, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Spanish head coach is set to be ditched after the former FC Barcelona manager asked for a hefty wage to succeed Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

The same article states that the Gunners are keen to appoint a younger coach to replace the 68-year-old Frenchman at the end of the 2017-18 season.

According to the same story, Arsenal legends Patrick Vieira and Mikel Arteta remain in contention to take over the reins in the summer.

AS Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim and Juventus boss Massimiliano are part of the shortlist despite being more experienced managers than Arteta and Vieira.

Germany head coach Joachim Low is another potential contender to take over from Wenger given his success with the national team.

Arsenal suffered a 3-1 loss to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in their penultimate Premier League fixture under Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners will make the trip to Huddersfield Town at John Smith’s Stadium on the final day of the season looking to avoid a 12th loss of the campaign on the road.
