Marcelino lands in London amid Arsenal speculation

Marcelino has reportedly flown to London on Sunday, amid speculation linking him to the vacant Arsenal manager’s position.

The Gunners sacked a former Valencia and Sevilla manager, Unai Emery, after a poor start to the season but are now considering hiring another, with reports claiming they had made contact with the 54-year-old last week.

Arsenal’s head of football, Raul Sanllehi, is stepping up his search for Emery’s replacement, with interim boss Freddie Ljungberg failing to arrest the slide after starting his reign with a draw against Norwich before defeat to Brighton.
