Liverpool moved forward on Wednesday morning and officially approached Feyenoord to take their manager Arne Slot. It was the Dutch media who first reported the attempt, and from the start they were confident that the Reds would be able to strike a deal with the Eredivisie side.

As Wednesday grew older all of that became more apparent, and now it feels like a matter of time before Liverpool are able to announce they’ve found Jurgen Klopp’s replacement.

So how does this impact Arsenal? Well, Feyenoord need to find themselves a replacement to take over at the club from the summer.

AD, the Dutch newspaper closest to Feyenoord, have been going through candidates, and one of those currently works at Arsenal. Albert Stuivenberg is Mikel Arteta’s assistant manager and is seen as a candidate for several reasons.

Stuivenberg worked ‘for many years’ in the youth academy at Feyenoord, as did his father. The Arsenal assistant would ‘guarantee attacking football’ and also has experience working alongside Louis van Gaal at Manchester United, and with Ryan Giggs and Rob Page with the Wales national team.

He’s 54-years-of-age and if he doesn’t take a senior role soon then it may look like he’s let the opportunity pass him by. This could be a perfect opportunity for Stuivenberg and result in his Arsenal exit.

Of course, he’s only a potential right now, so it’s all over to Feyenoord, who are seeing their manager likely heading for Liverpool.
