Matt Le Tissier believes Everton manager Ronald Koeman should replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal at the end of the season.
Sky Sports pundit Le Tissier believes the key Toffees figure would surround himself with “strong” characters which would help them win the Premier League title.

However, since that team, Wenger has failed to lift the PL trophy, only winning back-to-back FA Cups in 2014 and 2015 during that time.
