? Arsenal head of football Raul Sanllehi would opt to hire former Barcelona boss and current Spain coach Luis Enrique to replace the sacked Unai Emery in north London if he had the freedom to appoint his first choice.

“People I’ve spoken to have said if Raul had his choice of the market, he would pick Luis Enrique,” Ornstein explained.

Ljungberg could even become a ‘genuine contender’ if he turns around the team’s fortunes, but it has also been claimed that budget constraints could limit Arsenal’s choices to a cheap replacement like the Swede or fellow rookie Mikel Arteta.

It has been suggested that Arsenal have as many as 12 names on their managerial shortlist, before a four-man panel of Sanllehi, technical director Edu, managing director Vinai Venkatesham and contracts negotiator Huss Fahmy whittles it down to just ‘four or five’.

But the search for a permanent replacement is ongoing.

The north London side made the decision to dismiss Emery last week and have temporarily promoted assistant coach Freddie Ljungberg to the hotseat.

The update comes from David Ornstein in the latest episode of The Ornstein & Chapman Podcast for The Athletic, explaining that Sanllehi was ‘very keen’ on Enrique when the search was on for Arsene Wenger’s replacement in 2018.
