The Arsenal legend wants to see Watford boss as a replacement of Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium.
Ian Wright has claimed that his old club should look to appoint Marco Silva as Arsene Wenger’s replacement.
The Gunners manager is coming under pressure at The Emirates after a disappointing 2-1 loss against Watford at Vicarage Road earlier this month.
Troy Deeney canceled out captain Per Mertesacker’s opener from the penalty spot, and the former Manchester United player Tom Cleverley scored an added-time winner in the English capital.
Watford moved on fourth place in the Premier League table ahead of Arsenal and Liverpool to prompt the optimistic Hornets fans to mention a possible top-four challenge.
Wenger signed a new two-year contract in the summer despite north London club finishing in fifth place in the Premier League to miss out on the spot in the Champions League for the first time under his management.
Arsenal, who won against Everton 5-2 on Sunday, are already nine points behind the leaders Manchester City to raise questions about Wenger’s long-term future at the north London club.
Former Arsenal striker Wright thinks that Silva would be very similar in style to his former Gunners boss George Graham.
Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live, “Well you can see that [why Silva is linked with Arsenal]. His teams are very organised.”
“He definitely gets an uplight. He is a training ground manager. He is George Graham-esque. That’s what Arsenal need.”
