Arsenal Legend Ray Parlour believes Diego Simeone will be the perfect replacement for Arsene Wenger.

Wenger is in the final year of his contract at the Emirates and the French man is yet to indicate if he will sign a new deal or not.

Yesterday, reports claimed the Gunners are already considering AFC Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe as a replacement for Wenger but Parlour believes Simeone should be the favourite for the Gunners job should the French man step down.

Parlour told talkSPORT, via Standard Sport: “Simeone, whether he would want to move from La Liga we don’t know, but I’m sure he would like to test himself in the Premier League against the likes of [Pep] Guardiola, [Jose] Mourinho, [Jurgen] Klopp and managers like that.

“He would be the favourite if it came to Arsenal changing the manager at the end of the season.”

Simeone has become one of the best managers in football since he joined Atletico and it is unknown if Arsenal would be able to convince him to leave the Spanish capital for the Emirates.

Howe and Simeone are two young exciting bosses and we are certain that whoever is given the job when Wenger leaves will do a great job.
