The Sun have claimed that super agent Jorge Mendes held talks with Arsenal over a possible move that could have taken Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo to Arsenal to replace Mikel Arteta – and Wolves fans have responded.
Santo has been at Wolves since the summer of 2017, taking charge of 177 games and winning 88 of them. He has taken the Midlands outfit back into the Premier League and into European football during his time in charge.
But Wolves are out of Europe and really struggling in the Premier League following an injury sustained by Raul Jimenez. Santo has seen his side win just one of their last eight Premier League games, a 2-1 win over Chelsea.
The Sun’s report claims that Santo’s agent Mendes – renowned for orchestrating many of Wolves’ dealings in the transfer window including an influx of Portuguese talent to the club – has held talks with Arsenal over Santo’s future.
Arteta, meanwhile, has turned Arsenal’s form around – winning the last four matches, three in the Premier League against Chelsea, Brighton and West Brom and then in the FA Cup against Newcastle. But form was poor beforehand.
Wolves supporters have responded on Twitter to the reports that Santo’s agent Mendes has held talks with Arsenal over a potential move to replace Arteta – and that he could be open to leaving Molineux for La Liga.
Think it could also be to try and strong arm for more transfer funds.

If it were to be true, it would show why he’s not doing his best for the club, hence the poor form. But I’m pretty sure it’s not true and he’s just struggling but he does need to do better as a coach to get us out this slump.

It probably explains our current predicament, he wants out and doesn’t give a dam! Thinks he’s too good for us. Human and not a god after all #wwfc

The team is built around Nuno if he goes majority of the team would over a couple seasons.
