EPL: Arsenal Deny Contacting Mourinho To Replace Emery

Arsenal have denied reports that the club’s head of football, Raul Sanllehi, recently met with former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

According to The Times, Arsenal’s head of football, Raul Sanllehi and Mourinho had dined last week as the club consider pulling the trigger with a managerial change.

The former Manchester United manager was reportedly impressed with the Arsenal chiefs plans for their squad.

The report also claimed that Unai Emery has just one or two games remaining to save his job as club bosses seriously consider a move ahead of the November international break.

Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw at the Emirate to Wolves on Saturday, with pressure mounting on Emery.

The Gunners were also knocked out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, as they let a two-goal lead slip to draw 5-5 with a youthful Liverpool side before losing on penalties.

The Arsenal manager has only been able to guide his players to two victories in nine outings, continuing the disastrous form they ended last season.

Sources close to the club, however, told Goal.com that the rumoured meeting did not happen, with Sanllehi having not met Mourinho in person for a number of years.

Emery replaced Arsene Wenger in the summer of 2018.
