Allegri to Arsenal: BBC’s David Orstein reveals update on Arsenal’s move for new manager

BBC journalist David Ornstein has revealed the latest regarding Arsenal’s search for a new manager ahead of next season.

The Gunners confirmed a couple of weeks ago that Arsene Wenger would be stepping down as manager at the end of the current season.

The decision means that for the first time in 22 years, the club will be responsible for appointing a new manager whose task will be to secure a return to the Champions League after two straight years of finishing outside of the top four in the Premier League.

Several big names have been linked with the soon-to-be vacant Arsenal job and those who are leading the race appear to be former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and Juventus manager Max Allegri.

According to respected BBC journalist David Ornstein, the Gunners are hoping to appoint a new manager before the World Cup kicks off and Allegri is indeed planning on leaving Juventus.
