Southampton boss Ronald Koeman is prepared to wait until next summer in the hope he will get the Gunners job, according to reports.
The Dutch tactician has been linked with a move to the Emirates and he is now said to be nursing the idea of moving to the club in the future.
The 53 year old manager has done a wonderful job since replacing Mauricio Pochettino at the St Mary’s stadium and he is now being linked with a move to Everton.
According to the Daily Mirror via the Metro, Koeman is prepared to snub Everton’s interest to stay put at the St Mary’s. The Dutch man will be doing this in the hope he will get to replace Wenger next season.
Wenger’s long term future is still up in the air, although it is certain that the French man will remain at the Emirates next season, but with his contract set to expire next year, there is no indication that the manager would extend his deal at the Emirates. Should Wenger leave the club when his contract expire, Koeman whose contract at Southampton also expires at the same time would be favourites to take over at the Emirates.
Koeman believes should he impress with Southampton next season, he would be in line to land a bigger job than Everton.
Few months back, the odds of Koeman moving to Arsenal was as low as 8-1, making him favourites for the Emirates hot seat.
Wenger has been at the Emirates since 1996 and the French man could leave the club should he not be able to deliver the league title before his current deal expires.
