Chelsea and Arsenal could well be on the lookout for a new manager come the summer, and it seems that not only are the Premier League clubs possibly set to go head-to-head with each other in that quest, but that they could well have to fight off one of the richest clubs in the world too.
PSG are reportedly keen on both Thomas Tuchel and Joachim Low – both of whom have been linked with Chelsea and the Gunners, and it seems that Emery’s time at the club is coming to an end.

However, as with most things, there are conflicting reports, with Sky Sports claiming that the Ligue 1 side actually want Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho to take over, and there have been tentative approaches to his camp, yet with United planning on backing Mourinho to the hilt this summer and providing him with the power to not only clear out a squad who have long been due an overhaul but also to bring in world class talent too, that seems unlikely at this stage – as does a move for Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino, hence other options being considered.
Antonio Conte certainly looks set to leave Chelsea come the summer, irrespective of a top four finish or an FA Cup win, but it seems Arsene Wenger will once again cling on.
He will have a year left on the new deal he signed last summer, and wants to honour that, with no plans on leaving despite fan reaction to him and a growing sense that the board do want to replace him and are planning on life without him.
While that’s terrible news for the Arsenal fans, it is at least a boost for Chelsea who will then of course have less work to do in order to convince the likes of Luis Enrique or Tuchel to join them – providing their heads aren’t turned by PSG of course.
