Arsenal are in advanced talks with Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri to replace Arsene Wenger at the end of the season.
Wenger is currently midway through his 21st campaign in charge of the Gunners, but his future at the club is uncertain with his contract set to expire at the end of the season. Although the 67-year-old has claimed he will make a decision whether to sign a new deal in spring, the Arsenal hierarchy are said to be drawing up a list of potential replacements.
According to The Sunday Express, the north London club are now in ‘advanced talks’ with Allegri to become the next Arsenal boss. It’s understood that although talks are in an advanced stage, they are yet to reach an agreement with the Juve manager.
Although Allegri, who has guided Juventus to two Serie A titles, two Coppa Italia trophies and an Italian Super Cup, the 49-year-old has reportedly had a big bust up with some of his players following their exit from the Italian Super Cup this season.
Allegri does look like the hot favourite to replace Wenger, but the Gunners do have other targets in mind – RB Leipzig’s Ralph Hasenhuttl, Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe and Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone are just a few names said to be on the list.
