Former Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique has reportedly asked a transfer kitty of £200m if he is to take the upcoming vacancy at Arsenal.
Earlier this month long-standing Gunners manager Arsene Wenger revealed that he would be leaving the club at the end of the campaign, prompting a flurry of speculation over his replacement.
Thought to be among the high-profile candidates is Enrique, who won the Champions League, two La Liga crowns and three back-to-back Copas del Rey during his three campaigns in Catalonia.
As reported by The Sun, Enrique would “rip through the squad” if he takes over from Wenger at the Emirates and plans changes to the goalkeeping, defensive and midfield lines.
The outlet says that the Spaniard wants £200m to strengthen in those areas, however, is content with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette as his attacking options.
The Gunners are destined for a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League and face an uphill fight to reach the final of the Europa League after a 1-1 first-leg semi-final draw with Atletico Madrid last evening.
