In Summary

  • There has been contact between Arsenal and Max Allegri over the vacant manager's job following the exit of Unai Emery who was fired on Friday
  • Allegri left Juventus last summer after a spectacular period of success which saw him collect five Serie A titles and four Coppa Italias - as well as reaching two Champions League finals

There has been contact between Arsenal and Max Allegri over the vacant manager’s job following the exit of Unai Emery who was fired on Friday.

Allegri left Juventus last summer after a spectacular period of success which saw him collect five Serie A titles and four Coppa Italias – as well as reaching two Champions League finals.

The Premier League club is looking for a “high-calibre head coach” to replace Emery, and the 52-year-old Italian would fit the bill, according to reports.

However, Allegri is reportedly on a sabbatical and will not accept another managerial role this season.

It is also understood some senior figures at Arsenal wanted Jose Mourinho to replace Emery before he succeeded Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham.

Another manager being strongly linked with the Emirates hot seat is Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian is currently in his second season in charge of Napoli, but is under contract until the end of the season.

However, like Arsenal, Napoli are without a win in the last seven games.
