Sometimes you look at certain clubs and wonder why managers would even touch managerial work there, but it mostly comes down to their ego believing that they can succeed where others have failed and bring back the glory days.
We all know that Arsenal are a huge club, but if you look at their roster, rival teams have nothing to worry about, while there is a culture of failure among many of the players, so it will take a little effort to flip it.
You need a strong coach who is an expert in the transfer market, who has a track record of improving players and someone who understands the league, so Brendan Rodgers could be the perfect choice.
A report from The express has indicated that Rodgers is willing to leave Leicester to take over the Emirates if he is fired from Arteta, something that seems to get closer with every excruciating performance.

It would be a bold move for Rodgers because he would immediately give up on a Champions League chase for a relegation battle, so he must feel like he has pushed Leicester as far as he can and believes that Arsenal have the resources to eventually move on to the next level.
Arsenal went down too easily tonight so Arteta needs them to have a strong festive period because a few more losses will see Arsenal in the relegation zone and he will surely be fired at that point.
Rodgers has also shown in the past that he will happily switch jobs during the season, so that shouldn’t be a problem here, but Leicester can be very reluctant to let him go.
