Jose Mourinho 'keen on Arsenal manager's job' as pressure builds on Unai Emery

Jose Mourinho is reportedly eyeing the Arsenal job as he plots a return to football management.

The Portuguese has been out of work since being sacked by Manchester United in 2018, and is keen on returning to the Premier League.

Mourinho has had a number of job offers in recent months but has turned each of them down in search of the right club to manage.

Arsenal and Tottenham are two sides reportedly on his radar with managers Unai Emery and Mauricio Pochettino under pressure at their respective clubs.

Mourinho has won major honours at both Chelsea and Manchester United.
