Harry Redknapp believes Arsenal should sign Mauricio Pochettino should they sack current boss Unai Emery.
Pochettino, who was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur last night and replaced by Jose Mourinho, has already been linked with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
But former Spurs boss Redknapp reckons Arsenal would love the chance to sign their rivals’ former manager.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Redknapp said: “There are clubs in London who are having a terrible time.
“Why shouldn’t he go to Arsenal if he wants to? You think the Arsenal fans wouldn’t love him there?
“If you go in there and start winning football matches, they would have taken Saddam Hussein in there when he was about, the fans don’t give a monkeys!
“If you start winning every week, they’re singing ‘there’s only one Saddam’.
“It happens in football – Sol Campbell went from Tottenham to Arsenal, George Graham did it, Terry Neill did it, Pat Jennings, one of our greatest goalkeepers in history, even he made the change.”
While Emery’s side haven’t won in all competitions in five games while slipping eight points behind fourth-placed Man City.
Redknapp added: “It can happen, as long as you can do the job. I would have thought Arsenal will be looking at Pochettino now thinking, ‘could we? Can we?'”
The former PSG boss has really struggled to make this Arsenal side perform and there has been increased speculation about his future at the club. Three of their next four fixtures are at home and Emery will need close to maximum points to avoid the same fate as Pochettino.
