Arsenal are considering a number of potential options to succeed Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium this summer, with the Frenchman stepping aside after 22 successful years at the helm in north London.

The Gunners have been tight lipped on who they are pursuing but plenty of reports have emerged in the press naming candidates, including former Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti.

Ancelotti has a wealth of experience in European football, having also guided Chelsea to double success and managing Bayern Munich, and Arsenal could face a fierce fight to land his services, as two Italian sides have entered the mix.

CalcioMercato state Napoli, set for heartbreak in their pursuit of the Serie A title, are lining-up a move for Ancelotti is they lose the services of highly-rated manager Maurizio Sarri, who has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea.

However, other reports suggest Ancelotti has informed Juventus that he is available this summer if they need a new manager, with Max Allegri also widely linked with the Arsenal vacancy.
