Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will be sacked if summer overhaul at the Emirates doesn’t work, talkSPORT told

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta could be sacked 10 games into next season if a summer overhaul fails to deliver results, talkSPORT have been told.

The Gunners are having one of their worst campaigns in Premier League history and are set to finish outside the European qualification places.

If they fail to win the Europa League that will mean no continental football for the club for the first time since 1995/96.

It’s inevitable there will be transfer activity at the Emirates as they look to cope with that possible loss of revenue.

If new signings and the club’s current crop of starlets like Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe cannot combine to improve performances then big issues could be afoot.

And former Premier League striker Tony Cascarino believes a failure to mount an immediate challenge for a return to the top six will result in manager Arteta losing his job.

“I was thinking about Arsenal and Tottenham, funnily enough, at the same time yesterday,” Cascarino said.

“I was just thinking about how much of a mess these two clubs have got themselves into and it stems from ownership. That has played a massive part.

“The clubs are in a mess. Both have built new stadiums, state of the art. The Emirates was brilliant when it was built. Compete with the very best in Europe and Tottenham have done likewise.

Unai Emery came back to haunt former club on Thursday with Villarreal winning the first leg of their Europa League semi-final

“The problem is they’re a mess on the field. Things are going to be changing at those two clubs. Arteta has got a massive challenge in reinventing Arsenal.

“He will get this summer to do that but 10 games into next year, if things are not very different, he won’t survive.”
