Arsenal Refute Claims of Mourinho Meeting as pressure mounts on Emery.

Arsenal have played down claims that the club’s head of football, Raul Sanllehi, recently met with Jose Mourinho as pressure continues to mount on Gunners boss Unai Emery.

Saturday’s draw at home to Wolves led to further calls for Emery to lose his job , with the Spaniard having overseen just two wins from the north London outfit’s last nine Premier League matches.

The Gunners were also knocked out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday as they let a two-goal lead slip to draw 5-5 with a youthful Liverpool side before losing on penalties.

And reports emerged on Sunday that Mourinho had recently dined with Sanllehi, with Arsenal considering the former Chelsea boss as a potential replacement for Emery.

However, sources close to the club have revealed that the rumoured meeting did not happen, with Sanllehi having not met Mourinho in person for a number of years.
