Arsenal legend, Ian Wright believes Burnley manager Sean Dyche has what it takes to replace Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.

Dyche’s men moved into sixth place in the Premier League on Sunday with 1-0 defeat of Everton at Goodison Park.

And Wright says the former Watford boss is ready to take another step in his career.

“I believe he is somebody that needs to go, at some stage, to the next level,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 live on Monday.

Wright added that ideally Dyche would take over a “club who can play in Europe on a regular basis.”

Asked directly if he would endorse Dyche as Wenger’s successor at Arsenal, Wright said yes, but had doubts Arsenal would accept him.

“Yeah. The fact is would they give Sean Dyche that job?” Wright added.

“In respect to how his team sets up when they’re defending, he’s obviously got acumen — but will he get a job like that? I don’t think he will.”
