Arsenal face a stern test this summer to find the right successor to departing boss Arsene Wenger, who is stepping aside after 22 successful years in charge of the Gunners.

A host of names have already been linked with the position at Stadium andĀ The MirrorĀ reports that former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is back in the running for the job, after rejecting the opportunity to take charge of Italy’s national side.

Ancelotti has been out of football since leaving Bayern Munich earlier this season but the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss is keen to return to club management, putting his name back on the board for a potential move to Arsenal.

The 58-year-old finds himself in esteemed company on Arsenal’s shortlist, alongside Juventus’ Max Allegri, former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique, Monaco’s Joachim Lowe and former captain Patrick Vieira.

Arsenal stated they would make a decision on Wenger’s successor quickly after his announcement last month but there is still no word from the club as to who their next manager will be.
