Arsenal in advanced talks with Allegri to replace Wenger


The Gunners are already negotiating a potential summer managerial change at the Emirates

Arsenal are understood to be in advanced talks with Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri, who they wish to take over from long-serving boss Arsene Wenger this summer.

Many Gunners fans have been calling for the Frenchman to leave the Emirates for some time, although the club has always been supportive of the 67-year-old – who is the longest-serving manager in the Premier League.

But it finally seems the Arsenal hierarchy are ready to go in a new direction and hand someone else control at the north London club for the first time since 1996.

The Frenchman’s contract expires at the club at the end of the season and Arsenal have yet to negotiate fresh terms with their long-serving boss.

However, despite being in talks with Allegri, it’s understood no agreement has yet been reached with the Juve boss who has won two Serie A titles, two Coppa Italias and an Italian Super Cup during his time in charge of the Old Lady, while he is also on course for a third league title this campaign.

Allegri reportedly had a fall out with his players, following their Italian Super Cup exit earlier this season, but prizing him away from a club he is enjoying so much success with could be a big task, in order to tempt Juve to let him go.

RB Leipzig boss Ralph Hasenhuttle is also understood to be a target of Arsenal, if they do indeed let Wenger’s contract run down.
