Former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has said that he prefers Arsenal over other clubs like Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea in the Premier League, reports Goal.com.
"Guardiolaâ€™s preference in England is Arsenal,â€ a source close to the Catalan legend reportedly told Goal.com. â€œThe club are aware he would be interested in the job in 2013. Guardiola doesnâ€™t want to go to Chelsea. He is worried about the lack of stability. He also has a good relationship with Wenger dating back to when he started doing his coaching badges at Arsenal.â€
Guardiola's representatives have approached the Arsenal management with an offer if they consider replacing Arsene Wenger next year. The former Catalan midfielder, who guided his former side to 14 trophies during a four year spell, could be just the man to end Arsenal's trophy drought, as Arsene Wenger seems at his wit's end.
Although the club are within two points of fourth place, the defeat in the Capital One Cup to Bradford City means that the Arsenal manager's career is at its lowest point since he joined the club. His current deal runs till 2014, but a failure to finish in a Champions League spot could mean that Wenger could be forced to discuss a mutual exit strategy with the management.
