Sid Lowe has tipped Luis Enrique to be a success at Arsenal if the Gunners turn to the Spanish coach.

The Gunners are on the lookout for a new manager after Arsene Wenger announced that he will stand down at the end of the campaign.

Arsenal have been linked with a potential move to appoint the former FC Barcelona manager in the summer.

Enrique won two La Liga titles, the Champions League and the Copa del Rey three times during his three seasons in charge at Camp Nou.

Arsenal haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 when Wenger’s side finished the season without suffering a single loss.

The Gunners have never won the Champions League and haven’t even reached the competition’s quarter-finals since 2010.

La Liga expert Lowe issued his backing for Enrique and explained what Gunners fans can expect if the Spanish coach does become Arsenal boss.

“Arsenal would be getting an extremely hard working manager,” Lowe told ESPN.

“A manager who will be determined to understand and adapt to the Premier League. I think he will be able to do it. He is potentially a good signing for Arsenal.”

Arsenal lost 3-1 to Leicester City in Wenger’s penultimate game in charge of the north London side at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Gunners lost 3-0 to Premier League champions Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley last term.
