How Arsenal could line up under Jose Mourinho with Fernandes, Rice and Alderweireld – The Sun

THIS could be the incredible Arsenal line up if Jose Mourinho were to take the reigns at the Emirates.

SunSport exclusively revealed how the Special One is primed for a Premier League return, nearly a year after leaving Manchester United.

And the Gunners are believed to be very much in the hunt for the Special One's services.

Pressure is building on Unai Emery with Arsenal winning just one game in four.

After a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace marred by a row between Granit Xhaka and angry supporters, Arsenal performed no better this week as they drew 1-1 at home to Wolves.

Meanwhile, Mourinho continues to wait for his next destination after failing to receive a suitable offer over the summer.

And should he take over at the Emirates, the Special One could look to strengthen the spine of the side with three signings.

NEW SPINE FOR THE SPINELESS

In defence, Mourinho has been a long-term admirer of Toby Alderweireld.

He tried to bring the Spurs ace, 30, to Manchester United on numerous occasions.

And with the Belgian out of contract at the end of the season, and Tottenham also in decline, Mourinho could be tempted to reach out across the north London divide and poach a fierce rival’s star centre-back.

Arsenal look to already be solid in attack, with Nicolas Pepe completing a formidable front three alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

So it may be midfield where Mourinho puts all his – albeit limited – Arsenal resources.
