The former Barcelona boss’ odds have tumbled from 14/1 to 5/2 after surge of bets.

Patrick Vieria had been installed as the immediate favourite in the hours after the club announced the news Wenger would be leaving the club at the end of this season.

However the market has been fluctuating wildly since with a host of other possible candidates all being priced downwards.

Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “Despite being constantly linked with Chelsea over the past few months, Luis Enrique is the one that everyone’s been backing for the Arsenal job over the weekend and he’s now our clear favourite to take over from Arsene Wenger.

“Enrique was as big as 14/1 when Wenger’s departure was confirmed, but he’s been backed into the 5/2 with punters seemingly viewing him as the man to take the Emirates hot seat.

“Current Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers and former Gunner Patrick Vieira were both early frontrunners for the job last week but support for that pair has cooled off and they’re now as big as 7/1 and 8/1 respectively.”
