Luis Enrique will challenge Manchester United and Chelsea for Roma star Radja Nainggolan if he takes charge of Arsenal this summer.

The Spaniard is the leading candidate to replace Arsene Wenger when the Frenchman steps down at the end of the current campaign. Arsenal are expected to hand their new boss around £50million to spend but any departures will be added to the manager’s budget.

The likes of Calum Chambers, Shkodran Mustafi and Aaron Ramsey all face uncertain futures.

Nainggolan has long been linked with a move to Chelsea but Enrique has identified the Roma midfielder as his first choice should he take charge of the Gunners, according to the Sun.

Enrique is just one candidate that Arsenal are considering as their next boss.

The Spaniard won the treble with Barcelona in 2015 and he’s keen to return to management after a year-long sabattical.

Mikel Arteta, Patrick Vieira and Brendan Rodgers are also being considered.
