Is Eddie Howe the next Arsenal manager?

It’s been over 19 years since Arsene Wenger was officially appointed as the head coach of Arsenal and even though fans have developed a love-hate relationship with the French tactician, it’s hard to deny that he has become kind of an icon with the Premier League club.

There will be a point in time when Arsenal will have to search for a manager that can replace Arsene Wenger and rumors have been linking Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe with the managerial position in Arsenal.

Eddie Howe is not such a well-known manager as Pep Guardiola or Jose Mourinho but Howe has certainly been attracting the attention of the media as he has been accomplishing very impressive tasks in the past few years.

Back in 2015, Eddie Howe was named as the manager of the decade in the English League Championship and this shows the impact that the English tactician has been having in recent times.

The first club that Eddie took charge of was Bournemouth back on January of 2009 and in his debut season, he managed to rescue the club out of the bottom relegation zone even though they had a 17 point deficit. In the next season, he managed to push Bournemouth to promotion into the League One.

This is just one of the recent accomplishments of Eddie Howe and one of the reasons of why he has been recently linked with a number of clubs including Arsenal.

One of the reasons of why Eddie Howe could indeed become the successor of Arsene Wenger and why these rumors aren’t so far-fetched to believe is because he already has a healthy relationship with Arsenal after having snatched Jack Wilshere on a loan deal.

The savior of Bournemouth is however a very young manager as he is only 38 years old which is very young for a manager and his lack of experience could become a problem for his chances of taking charge of a top European club such as Arsenal.
