Emery is under increasing pressure at Arsenal following his side’s 2-0 defeat to Leicester City on Saturday, which has left the club eight points behind fourth place and six on the Premier League log.
Reports had emerged last week of a meeting between Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi and Jose Mourinho to discuss his potential arrival at the club.
But now El Confidencial’s Kike Marin now claims that Sanllehi has met Luis Enrique.
The 49-year-old won nine major trophies during his three years as Barcelona manager which included the treble in his first season at the club.
Luis Enrique took over as Spain coach in July 2018 but left 11 months later for personal reasons as his nine-year-old daughter Xana passed away from osteosarcoma – a form of bone cancer – in August.
