Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was earmarked by many supporters as their preferred candidate to replace Unai Emery as the next Arsenal boss. 

However, a new name that has been thrown into the mix is Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone.

Multiple Arsenal fans were demanding Pochettino to be appointed following his Spurs sacking, however, Argentine Simeone is now reportedly under major pressure with the La Liga heavyweights.

There were plenty more calls for Simeone, and it’s clear he’s now the number one choice from the fans. 

He would make sure he sorted out the club’s defensive woes as quickly as possible, with his Atletico side known for their stubborn showings at the back during his eight-year spell in Spain.  

Supporters will be hoping that the latest reports regarding his position at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium are true, and if he is indeed sacked, he could be keen on the switch to the Premier League.

Who would you rather have?
