Sampaoli has put Premier League clubs on red alert
Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli has put Premier League clubs on red alert after admitting: "I hope I get the chance to go to England."
Sampaoli says he wants to join 'some of the best coaches in the world' in the English top flight having been linked with the Arsenal job.
Arsene Wenger is under huge pressure at the Emirates with the Gunners' top-four hopes hanging by a thread following their 3-0 humbling at the hands of Crystal Palace on Monday evening.
And Sampaoli has close links to Alexis Sanchez having coached Chile to the Copa America title in 2015.

The Sevilla boss has impressed in his debut season in La Liga 
He told The Sun: "I hope I get the chance to bring my experience and my ideas to England where some of the best coaches have already brought their own philosophy. I want to compete with them.”
The Argentine revealed he had long talks with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to take over at Stamford Bridge, but the Russian oligarch opted to appoint Antonio Conte instead.
Sampaoli has Sevilla fighting with Atletico Madrid for third spot behind Clasico rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona in La Liga, but sees the Premier League as more competitive.

He continued: “I am grateful to Sevilla. But La Liga has three teams that are way above the rest. You’re born with the desire to win and in the teams of, say, the second level of La Liga this is extremely difficult.
“Because of their limited financial power. It’s so tough when you face reality. We have so far had the best season in the history of the club and it’s not enough."

Would Jorge Sampaoli be a good option to replace Arsene Wenger?

The Portuguese has not netted in Europe since late September and will hope to end that disappointing run against Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals
Cristiano Ronaldo has failed to score in his last 613 minutes of Champions League action for Real Madrid, his longest drought in the competition since he went exactly 613 minutes without a goal for Manchester United between 2008 and 2009.
'Ronaldo has lost his appetite for scoring goals'
The Portuguese has netted just twice in the European competition this term and those came in Los Blancos' first two games in the group stages - at home to his old club Sporting CP and away to Borussia Dortmund.
The four-time Ballon d'or winner struck a fantastic free-kick as Madrid came from behind to beat Sporting 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu and then opened the scoring for Zinedine Zidane's side in Dortmund after 17 minutes in a 2-2 draw on September 27.

But Ronaldo, who was 32 In February, failed to add to that tally in the games home and away to Legia Warsaw, the trip to Lisbon and the meeting with BVB at the Bernabeu.
'Ancelotti out to beat Madrid at all costs'
The Portuguese has scored 34 in 40 fixtures for Real in knockout games in the Champions League, but he was unable to covert in either match against Napoli in the last 16 as Madrid avanced 6-2 on aggregate.
He has now failed to register with any of his last 33 shots in the continental competition and his 613 minutes scoreless streak in Europe equals his poorest run since he went exactly that time with Manchester United between May 2008 (when he netted in the final against Chelsea) and March 2009.
Against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday in the quarter-finals, he will now have another chance to put the record to bed as Zinedine Zidane's side seek a place in the last four.
