Burnley manager, Sean Dyche, has been tipped to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal by former Gunners striker, Ian Wright.
Wright identified Dyche as Wenger’s successor but has questioned whether the north London club would appoint him.
Wenger has been in charge of Arsenal club since 1996, delivering three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.
However, last season was the first in which the Frenchman failed to guide the club to Champions League qualification and calls for him to be sacked have intensified.
Supporters of the club embarked on numerous protests at the Emirates in a bid for him to be sacked, but despite last season’s failings, Wenger was handed a fresh two-year deal at the end of last term.
His current deal is likely to be his last at the club, with a number of names already being talked about to take charge of Arsenal once the 67-year-old retires
Wright, however, marked Burnley boss, Dyche as Wenger’s replacement following his success at Turf Moor.
He told the BBC, “I believe he is somebody that needs to go, at some stage, to the next level.
When asked if he would opt for Dyche as Wenger’s replacement, he added, “Yeah. The fact is would they give Sean Dyche that job?
“In respect to how his team sets up when they’re defending, he’s obviously got acumen – but will he get a job like that? I don’t think he will.”
