Eddie Howe has been linked with the Arsenal manager’s job, and supporters on Twitter have mixed views on the news.

The Sun have claimed that the 38-year-old Bournemouth manager’s name is currently being discussed by the Arsenal hierarchy.

The news wasn’t to everyone’s liking, and some Arsenal fans believe big-name players would not join the club if Howe was appointed manager.

Others questioned whether the Bournemouth manager is a big enough name in to be put in charge of the Premier League giants.

However, other supporters were quick to defend Howe and pointed out that Wenger was relatively unknown in the football world when he started at Arsenal.

Howe kept the Cherries in the Premier League last season with a 16th place finish, after leading them to promotion as winners of the Championship in the 2014/15 campaign. It is understood that the highly-regarded manager has influential admirers at the Emirates.

Arsene Wenger’s contract runs out at the end of the season and the long-serving manager is yet to make a decision on his future.
