The Mirror are reporting that Juventus manager Max Allegri is being considered to take over at Arsenal when Arsene Wenger leaves at the end of the season.
The Italian has all but clinched Juventus' 34th Serie A title and his third with the club but the Mirror reports that it is '50-50' as to whether the 50-year-old will stay with the Bianconeri and Allegri has spoken before of his desire to manage in England. It is understood that Juventus will resume contract negotiations with the coach after the Coppa Italia final against AC Milan this Wednesday.
Reports also say that Arsenal wish to have a manager in place before the start of the World Cup in Russia this summer.
Former players Patrick Vieira and Mikel Arteta and Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim are also said to be in the frame for the job, with chief executive Ivan Gazidis the man in charge of appointing a new manager after 22 years of Wenger at the helm. The club are said to be torn between picking an established coach to succeed Wenger or putting their faith in a younger manager.
Wenger himself has distanced himself from the selection process stating on Saturday that he has nothing to do with choosing a successor to his throne. The Frenchman saw his final home game at the club end in an emphatic 5-0 defeat of Burnley, with Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyng, Alex Iwobi and Sead Kolasinac all getting on the scoresheet.
The 68-year-old said after the game that he wants to 'reconnect with himself' after the dust settles on his tenure at Arsenal, but has suggested in the past that the Arsenal job will not be his last. PSG are thought to be interested in bringing him to the French capital in the capacity of general manager working with Thomas Tuchel next season.
