Interesting development, Zeljko Buvac has left his position as Klopp's right-hand man at Liverpool for 'personal' reasons. He was at Dortmundt at the same time as Sven Mislintat. Could he be the 'bold' choice Gazidis mentioned and the continuation of the German influence at the club? To depart from Liverpool now until the end of the season, just as the club are on the verge of reaching the Champions League final makes little sense, unless he truly has some personal problem to deal with. Perhaps he has told Liverpool that he is taking up the management role at Arsenal and the club wanted him out. This is pure speculation on my part, but it adds up, as Arsenal are reportedly close to signing Dortmundt defender Papasthatopoulos and are after German keeper Leno.

i sincerely doubt arsenal would go for buvac over viera and arteta because all of them are inexperienced but arsenal would rather take a chance on an ex player than someone else. My gut feeling is if arsenal go for a german manager it will be nagelsmann.

The words 'Bold choice' from Gazidis made me feel that they had the manager tied up and that he would be a shock choice, which would rule out the obvious experienced managers.
Therefore, the new manager is possibly an ex-player with little or no experience, an inexperienced manager or coach, at the highest level.
So:
Vieira, Henry or Arteta
Buvac or other coaches/ young or inexperienced managers.

Is a bit strange now the press are mentioning him as a contender. I swear Ed001 is a liverpool fan. Have you heard anything on this Ed?

{Ed001's Note - he had been bickering with Klopp for a while, he left because he was being marginalised with regards to selection and tactics. I do not know if Arsenal are now in for him, but he has had a number of offers presented to him through the years, they didn't stop when he moved to Liverpool and have increased this season. I couldn't say if Arsenal are one of the clubs that are making him an offer. However I am expecting him to leave Liverpool as he has normally kissed and made up with Klopp by now, as they do bicker like an old married couple at the best of times. They are always falling out and getting back together, which is why no one was really taking any notice initially this time.}

It makes complete sense that Buvac is a contender, as he has the German connection, knows Mislintat and is an experienced defensive coach. He is without doubt a bold choice and its odd timing to leave Liverpool on the verge of a possible CL final, with only a couple of weeks to go until the end of the season. He may not be the one, but is there really a stand out option? For me the top two managers are Mourinho and Guardiola, after that there are reservations for almost all candidates that I can think of.

Thank you Ed. Wasn't aware they argued a lot. I'm not sure what to make of him tho. I've seen people say how he is the brains behind his work and it seems the others are running the transfer side of things so maybe itll work.

{Ed001's Note - he is a part of things, but I am not convinced he is irreplaceable.}

If he was a young guy it would make sense but i really don't get why arsenal would appoint an introverted 56 year assistant manager who doesn't speak english to fill the big shoes left behind by wenger. That rumor doesn't add up. I don't think he is coming to Arsenal as a head coach or even an assistant coach.
