Arsenal are set for wholesale changes at the Emirates Stadium this summer after a disappointing campaign, with the biggest alteration set to come in management as Arsene Wenger steps aside after 22 years at the helm.

The Gunners have started to identify a number of potential replacements for the Frenchman in the market, with one leading candidate being Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri – who has just guided the Turin giants to the Coppa Italia crown and looks set to win his fourth Serie A title in a row.

Speculation has suggested that the 50-year-old Italian will seek a new challenge this summer and Allegri was pressed on his future after the 4-0 victory over AC Milan on Wednesday, where he refused to rule out a summer switch.

“I’m not thinking about my future. I have a contract with Juventus and as we do every year at the end of the season we will meet up to discuss the future of the club.”

Arsenal reportedly have Allegri near the top of their wish-list this summer, alongside former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and Manchester City’s assistant coach Mikel Arteta.
