Arsenal will need to pay out £14m in compensation if they want Brendan Rodgers to replace Unai Emery as manager.

While Spurs installed Jose Mourinho within 12 hours of dismissing Mauricio Pochettino their north London rivals have left their job vacant over the weekend with Freddie Ljungberg in charge of yesterday’s 2-2 draw with Norwich City.

After Emery was sacked on Friday morning Rodgers was quick to praise Arsenal as a club before he added how wonderfully happy he was with his life at Leicester. There was a familiar ring to those tones for Celtic fans.

Chris Sutton was quick to pick up on the signals being sent out by Rodgers with The Telegraph reporting:

Leicester City will demand a £14?million compensation fee from any Premier League club interested in manager Brendan Rodgers.

Telegraph Sport understands the figure required to prise Rodgers away from the King Power Stadium is substantial, with the former Celtic manager reiterating his commitment to the club on Friday.

Leicester moved into second place in the EPL yesterday with a 2-1 win over Everton while Arsenal are stuck in eighth place with less than half of the points total of Liverpool.

Should Rodgers decide that the profile of managing Arsenal is too big to resist there is the prospect of a return to Celtic in the new year on Europa League duty.
