Allegri overtake rivals in odds for Arsenal job – Gooners want him as next boss

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is interested in succeeding Arsene Wenger at Arsenal with his future in Italy said to be ’50/50′.

The Italian took over from Antonio Conte in 2014 and has taken the Old Lady to two Champions League finals in four seasons in Turin.

Allegri’s won 7 trophies in three seasons and has made it four Serie A titles in a row last weekend.

Luis Enrique, the former Barcelona manager, had been a frontrunner for the Emirates job but the Spaniard’s demanding in excess of £15m-a-year in wages to replace Wenger.

Wenger will have no say in his successor and his side’s Europa League exit means the Gunners are without Champions League football for the second season in a row.

Allegri’s success in Italy means there’s little left for him to achieve and he’s 50/50 to continue at the club next season, according to the Mirror.

If he leaves, Arsenal are his likeliest destination and that’s put him ahead of Enrique in the order.

Arsenal are keen to make an appointment shortly after the Premier League season ends and want their new man in place before the World Cup kicks off on June 15th.

That’s just five weeks away and the Gunners would have a month between the end of the season and the tournament in Russia to put Wenger’s successor in place.

  1. I hope it is true that Wenger will have no say in this. We do not need his approach to be continued. 67% of fans are voting for Allegri. Probably because they realise how big a job it is and want a manager of proven, long term experience. Not someone who is still learning the job !
