Arsenal chiefs have reportedly lined up four possible replacements for under-fire boss Arsene Wenger, including Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is in the frame to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal later this year, according to a report.

Wenger's future at the Emirates Stadium has once again been called into question following Sunday's 3-0 defeat to Manchester City in the EFL Cup final.

The long-serving Frenchman, now into his 22nd season at the Arsenal helm, will have his position reviewed at the end of the current campaign.

Gunners chiefs are said to be in the process of seeking potential replacements, and The Telegraph claims that ex-Liverpool boss Rodgers is among those being considered for the job, though there is a fear that supporters will not buy into the appointment.

Former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta, who is now working as part of Manchester City's coaching staff, is also understood to be in the running, as are Germany boss Joachim Low and Leonardo Jardim of Monaco.

The report suggests that Josh Kroenke, the son of majority owner Stan, has arrived in London and will have a big say in whether Wenger stays on for another year.
