The Clarets are just a point adrift of Arsenal in fifth after the Gunners to ten points from their last four matches.
And former Arsenal striker Wright says when the time comes to replace Arsene Wenger at the Emirates they should look at bringing in Dyche.

But the man who scored 185 for the Gunners fears the club will not even consider the Dyche because he is not a glamorous appointment.

Wright, speaking on BBC Five Live, said: “I believe he is somebody that needs to go, at some stage, to the next level – a club who can play in Europe on a regular basis.”

Asked by presenter Mark Chapman if he would like to see Dyche replace Wenger, Wright said: “Yeah. The fact is, though, would they have Sean Dyche that job?

“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.

“They’ll probably start touting him for the England job.

“We’re so bereft of managers that’s good enough, that can take on the England job. If he carries on like he is, he’ll probably be pushed into that role.”

Wright was backed up in his assessment of the Burnley boss by Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam.

Adam said: “Maybe some of these superstars need someone like him to come in and have a go.

“If he’s got the right attributes he can coach anybody.

“He’s an experienced manager in the Premier League. He’s done his groundwork with relatively smaller teams and got them set up well.

“He’s got the attributes to manage one of the top clubs. If Arsenal want him they should take him.”
