Although the Gunners have not sacked his coach but pressure has been mounting on current Gunners chief Unai Emery following a run of only two league wins in 11 Premier League games.
Arsenal was fortunate to grab a last-gasp equalizer against struggling Southampton at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. The 2-2 draw left them eighth in the table, 19 points behind leaders Liverpool.
National Sportslink understands that in their last six league games, Arsenal has managed just one win and that was a drab 1-0 victory over Bournemouth, a game which the Cherries deserved to win instead.
With Emery’s future apparently in the balance, the bookmakers have been taking bets on who might replace him at the helm.
And Wolves fans will not be pleased to learn that, at the time of writing, Nuno has been installed as the 6/4 favourite by Sky Bet.
Former Arsenal player Mikel Arteta is next on the list at 7/2, followed by Massimiliano Allegri and Rafa Benitez at 5/1. Mauricio Pochettino, sacked by Tottenham Hotspur last week, is at 6/1, with Freddie Ljungberg 8/1
Nuno Espirito Santo – 6/4
Mikel Arteta – 7/2
Rafa Benitez – 5/1
Max Allegri – 6/1
Maurico Pochettino – 6/1
Freddie Ljungberg – 8/1
Eddie Howe – 12/1
Patrick Vieira – 12/1
