Arsenal will reportedly make a move for Ligue 1 leaders Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim – if Arsene Wenger decides to end his 21-year career with the Gunners.

The 67-year-old manager is still yet to pen a new deal at the Emirates, despite his current contract expires at the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

Recent reports have stressed Wenger is still likely to sign a two-year deal with Arsenal despite fans demanding to see the Frenchman leaving.

However, according to Telefoot, in case the 67-year-old does leave, the Gunners have put Jardim at the top of their shortlist.

The Portuguese manager has been successful with Monaco as he has led the team to the Champions League semi-finals and his team seems to have beaten PSG in the race for Ligue 1 title.

The Gunners chiefs have reportedly been impressed with the 42-year-old success and believe he is the man to replace Arsene Wenger if he leaves.

Meanwhile, another key man who could leave Arsenal might be Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has told Arsenal superstar, Alexis Sanchez, he needs to help them ensure they sign him in the summer, according to reports.

Copa America Winner forward has been heavily linked with several top Premier League clubs after refusing to sign a contract extension with Arsenal.

City believe they are in pole position to lure Chile international forward at Etihad Stadium and Pep Guardiola seems to be a catalyst to the transfer rumours.
