Niko Kovac reportedly wants Arsenal job/why he watched Everton clash

Niko Kovac Bayern Munich

Kovac to Arsenal?

Niko Kovac has been out of work since the beginning of November, when he left his role as manager of German giants Bayern Munich.

But despite being out of work for a short period of time, could Kovac be keen to get back into management in the near future?

The former Bayern man was spotted at Everton’s clash with Chelsea on Saturday the 7th of December.

And with the Toffees currently without a permanent boss, Everton fans may have been hoping that the Croatian may be interested in taking the reins after Marco Silva’s departure.

However, Goal are now reporting that Kovac stated that he was only in England to take in a few games whilst on a break from football.

The same report from Goal also claims that Kovac will be present as Aston Villa take on Leicester on Sunday afternoon, and he will also watch Arsenal’s clash with West Ham on Monday evening.

And while Kovac is claiming that he is only in England on a fact-finding mission, Goal are reporting that the Croatian is interested in succeeding Unai Emery at Arsenal:

And, although the former Croatia boss has insisted he is only in England on a fact-finding mission, Goal has learned that he is interested in succeeding Unai Emery, who was sacked by the Gunners last month.

West Ham vs Arsenal

Since Unai Emery was sacked as Arsenal boss, club legend Freddie Ljungberg has been the man tasked with taking charge of Arsenal.

However, Ljungberg’s tenure as interim boss has been pretty disappointing so far.

In the two league ties that Ljungberg has overseen, Arsenal have drawn with relegation-battling Norwich, and lost to Brighton.

As mentioned above, the north London outfit will take on West Ham on Monday.

Should Arsenal fail to earn all three points against an out of form Hammers side, you would think that the Arsenal hierarchy would want to appoint a new boss as soon as possible, as Ljungberg’s results have so far probably not yielded the results the Gunners would have wanted.
