Arsene Wenger’s potential successor has been selected by the club according to new reports from the British media.
The Gunners boss will see his current contract at the club expire at the end of this season with only a few months left on his deal.
After more than two decades at Arsenal, Wenger could say goodbye if there is no agreement between him and the club to extend his contract.
Thus, The Sunday Express are now exclusively claiming that Arsenal are in ‘advanced talks’ with Massimiliano Allegri about replacing Arsene Wenger when this season is brought to an end.
The Italian tactician has guided Juventus to several Serie A titles in recent years and he is apparently the man Arsenal have deemed to be best equipped to continue the club’s philosophy of securing success without spending too heavily in the transfer market.
Giovanni Galeone, who has previously worked with Allegri, suggested earlier this month that the 49-year-old should be chosen to become Arsenal’s new boss.
”The merry cycle at Juventus is over, I hope his future is in the Premier League after winning another league title (with Juventus).” Galeone said
”I think his cycle in Turin is finished. Arsenal could be the right challenge for him, for his own good, succeeding Wenger in a team that has not won for a long time.”
