A switch to Arsenal would be a gamble for Rodgers

Media reports today suggest that Arsenal may be about to approach Leicester head coach Brendan Rodgers about the vacant position in north London.

The Gunners dispensed with the services of boss Unai Emery last week after a poor start to their campaign.

Rodgers has done excellent work at Leicester

The former Liverpool boss has only been in charge of the Foxes since the end of February, but they have shone under the Northern Irishman. The Foxes are currently sitting second place in the table and looking like they could very well secure a Champions League finish.

Rodgers has got the best out of a talented group of young players at the Midlands club. A number of players have improved under the guidance of the 46-year-old.

Arsenal squad is a mess

Arsenal may be a bigger name and have a bigger history than Leicester’s, but their squad is a mess at present. The Gunners have a squad full of players who are simply not good enough or error-prone.

There are very few players in the Arsenal squad that would get into Rodgers team at Leicester. While the Foxes players seem to be improving, the Gunners players are seemingly going backwards if anything.

It will take serious work to produce a winning formula out of the current group of Arsenal players.

It would be a massive gamble

No doubt Rodgers would probably get a big pay rise if he moved to north London. However, the 46-year-old may feel that making a move to Arsenal at this point in time would be a gamble considering their current problems.

More importantly, if he left for Arsenal, how long would it be until the Gunners are currently where Leicester are positioned in the league. Although Rodgers does have form for changing clubs pretty easily, he may just feel that remaining at Leicester is the better move for his career at the minute.
