Italian-Born-Allegri Tops Arsenal Summer Target List As Wenger’s Replacement
Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri, has been reportedly lined up as Arsene Wenger’s possible successor at the end of the season as Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis wants the Italian at Emirate Stadium.
The former Napoli boss led his men to an impressive victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium last week, having secured 2-2 at the reverse fixture in Italy in February.
Juventus came from a goal down to defeat the English team 2-1 to reach the quarterfinal stage in the champions league on 4-3 aggregate after two legs.
An amazing display which was said to have impressed the Arsenal executive adding that the Seria A Champions displayed a ‘strong and collective spirit’ in that encounter.
According to Bleacher report, Allegri has been learning English in the past 12 months according.
With Allegri’s tactical change, Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala a goal each in the space of nine minutes to cancel Heung-Min Son’s first half goal in the crucial tie.
Allegri who won the Serie A title with AC Milan in 2011—their only scudetto since 2004 is willing to adjust his tactics, the qualities Arsenal gaffer does not possess.
Wenger is often rigidly persisting with his tactics to a game even when the approach is not yielding a good result.
The 50-year-old has also clinched the league and cup double in each of the last three seasons the Old Lady and lost to Barcelona and Real Madrid in the finals of the Champions League in 2017 and 2017.
Juventus sit on the top of the Serie A table after hammering Udinese 2-0 last weekend while Napoli failed to pick maximum point against Inter Milan in their encounter at the San Siro on Sunday, Match 11.
However, for the Gunners to get the signature of the Juventus gaffer which would be incredible for the struggling Premier League giants, they will have to be passionate by winning the Europa League title or ensure they qualify for the Champions League to lure the manager from Italy.
Frenchman Arsene Wenger has spent over two decades at the Emirates Stadium but has just three FA Cups to his name in 2014.
In all, the Arsene Wenger has won 17 titles in his 22-year-reign at the club.
