Arsenal could be set for huge changes this summer, the biggest of which could come within the club’s hierarchy as there is growing calls for Arsene Wenger to be relieved of his duties.
The 68-year-old Frenchman has seen his position come under threat following a woeful few months for Arsenal, where they lost in the Carabao Cup final, experienced an early exit in the FA Cup and slipped further behind in the chase for a top-four finish in the Premier League.
That has left Arsenal’s eggs firmly placed in the Europa League basket, giving the squad one final chance of redemption, but even if the Gunners are victorious, Wenger could still be relieved of his duties- and Arsenal know exactly who they want to bring in.
The Daily Star indicates that Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has set his sights on Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri after the Italian oversaw a remarkable comeback in the Champions League last week to knock Tottenham Hotspur out of the competition.
Luring Allegri to the Emirates Stadium will not be easy, especially if the Gunners cannot offer Champions League football, but it shows Arsenal’s desire to appoint a leader who can oversee wholesale changes behind the scenes.
