Diego Simeone is among the managers who have been tipped to replace Arsenal Boss, who is spending his 21st years at Emirates and sees his contract at the end of the campaign.

The 46 years old has spent five years at Atletico Madrid and has conducted the Spanish giant to win in La Liga and the Europa League, and was hardly beaten twice in Champions League finals.
