EPL: Wenger Gets Premier League Offer
Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has been offered to Newcastle United as possible replacement for Rafa Benitez, according Chronicle Live.
Benitez’s current contract with Newcastle will expire in June and no agreement over a new deal has so far been reached.
Chronicle Live reports that several agents have been offering managers to Newcastle in the event that Benitez leaves St James’ Park.
According to the report, one agent, who has ‘strong links’ with Wenger, has been in contact with Newcastle.
It’s claimed that the agent in question believes he can ‘sell’ the idea to Wenger, although the 69-year-old is not involved in talks at the moment.
Wenger left Arsenal last season after managing the club for over two decades and had claimed that he would return to football this year.
The Frenchman remains without a club despite being linked with PSG.
Newcastle boss, Benitez, who spoke at a press conference on Friday about his contract, said, “I was talking to Lee Charnley [Newcastle’s managing director] this week, we will continue talking and let you know as soon as we have more news.
“I am positive that we are talking and everybody knows what is my idea. At least we can move forward a little bit.
“I would like to see this club growing and growing, and going where I think it deserves to be.”
