Enrique heads betting to replace Wenger

Former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique is the 3-1 favourite to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager at the end of the season.

Enrique has been on a sabbatical since his contract at the Camp Nou expired last summer but, with a move to the Emirates as short as 6-4, his return to management could be imminent.

Germany coach Joachim Low is among the other likely candidates and is now as short as 4-1 to take the position, while former Arsenal captains Mikel Arteta and Patrick Vieira have also been linked with the job at best-priced odds of 12-1 and 16-1 respectively.

Previous favourites Brendan Rodgers and Thomas Tuchel have both drifted significantly over the last week, with the ex-Liverpool boss 14-1 with bet365, Betfair and Paddy Power, while the German is now a best-priced 28-1.
