Brendan Rodgers regards Gunners as his ‘dream’ job but is unsure whether to leave the fantastic project he has started at Leicester City, according to reports. Former Celtic and Liverpool boss has emerged as one of the top candidates to take over at London club following Unai Emery’s sacking.

But Brendan has established Foxes as a genuine force in the Premier League, the club can move back above defending champions Man City into second on the weekend, in less than 12 months at the King Power Stadium.

So Rodgers would ‘love’ to secure a move to Emirates, it is claimed the Northern Irishman is undecided whether he can justify leaving Foxes. He was asking about the speculation linking him with Gunners after Emery’s departure and said: ‘It’s natural that there are links.

‘If you are doing okay, people want to take you away from something you enjoy. If you’re not, it doesn’t matter. ‘There’s always several names. We’re at the beginning of something here. My relationship with the people here and the players are powerful. ‘We think we are starting something exciting.

Arsenal is a fantastic club. One of the greats in this country. Gunners legend Charlie Nicholas, meanwhile, believes both Arsenal and Man United should be looking to move for Rodgers.

He said: ‘Mauricio Pochettino is floating everyone’s boat, but if you look at the real situation of how it has developed, then Rodgers is a better fit for both of those teams than Pochettino is because he knows how to win titles.
