Arsenal could be set for significant changes this summer as pressure upon Arsene Wenger begins to grow, leading to a wealth of suggestions that the Frenchman’s long-term association with the Gunners could come to a close.
The 68-year-old only signed a new two-year contract extension last summer but could leave the club prematurely, with the Gunners poised to miss out on a top four finish in the Premier League for the second consecutive season, suffering an early exit in the FA Cup and losing the Carabao Cup final to Manchester City.
A host of names have been linked with the potential vacancy at the Emirates Stadium, including that of Juventus boss Massimo Allegri- who’s widely regarded to be one of the leading candidates for the Arsenal job.
However, speaking to ANSA, Juventus chief Giuseppe Marotta stated he was not concerned about the links and tipped Allegri to continue with the defending Serie A champions.
‘Allegri has a contract with us for many years. The relationship with him is excellent, we are still one of the most important clubs in the world and there are no indications [he wants to leave] so it’s not a problem for us.’
If that is the case, Arsenal could be forced to look towards other targets and reportedly have former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique on their shortlist.
