Arsenal legend Paul Merson believes that Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers would be tempted to move to the Emirates despite insisting he is happy with the Foxes.

Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson has suggested that Brendan Rodgers might opt to move to Arsenal if the opportunity arises.

The Gunners legend believes that Rodgers may well see more long-term success in managing the North London outfit than his Leicester City side, who are currently second in the Premier League table following a six-match winning streak.

Merson told Sky Sports News: "[Rodgers] is happy and Leicester are the best team in the league at the moment. Do not look at the next six months though, you have to look at the all-round picture and the next five years.

"[Arsenal] is a big, big football club. He has managed Liverpool, but Arsenal are one of the top 10 clubs in Europe and in my opinion, I think he does [take the job]. Do not let the points gap between them now cloud your judgement."

Freddie Ljungberg is currently interim manager at Arsenal following the dismissal of Unai Emery last month.
