Would Marcelino be a good fit for Arsenal?

Here's our Spanish Football Correspondent, Ben Hayward... Marcelino Garcia Toral might seem like an uninspired choice for Arsenal.

Whereas Emery was accused of a lack of identity during his time at Arsenal, Marcelino’s teams have clear ideas.

Marcelino took Recreativo Huelva into La Liga in 2006 and secured an eighth-placed finish for Spain’s oldest club.

All of that could appeal to the Gunners and although success will depend on other factors, including his communication in English, he might just be the right man to toughen up the team's soft centre - and end up being what the club hoped Emery was when Arsene Wenger left in 2018.

Marcelino would probably not bring beautiful football to Arsenal and he is stubborn, but he knows what he wants and his teams play with a clear identity.

After a run of poor results, he was dismissed - and the club has not returned to Primera since.
