Arsenal legend David Seaman has tipped former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger to replace Maurizio Sarri at the Stamford Bridge.

Sarri has been under pressure to perform at Chelsea and report claimed that he would continue as the club’s manager for now but the coming fixtures could determine his future at the Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea performed below par against Bournemouth and Manchester City and failed to edge Manchester United in the FA Cup at the Stamford Bridge.

Seaman thinks if Sarri does depart Stamford Bridge then Wenger, who managed Arsenal for well over two decades, would be the perfect replacement for the former Napoli boss.

“Arsene always said he wouldn’t come back to the Premier League because of his love for Arsenal, that he wouldn’t feel right competing against Arsenal.

“But obviously time’s a healer and he could think, ‘I want to go back there and prove a few people wrong’.

“For me, Arsene got a lot of criticism that wasn’t deserved over his last few years at Arsenal.

“It looks like there could be a vacancy at Chelsea quite soon, depending on their next three games which are three big games for Chelsea.

“He’d be great there, I think. He’d be great anywhere, he’s a fantastic manager.

“I would love to see him back, but I don’t think it would happen.”

Wenger is yet to get a job since he stepped down as Arsenal boss last season, he is tipped to be the next Paris Saint-Germain boss if Thomas Tuchel failed to deliver the Champions League at the end of the season.
