Have Arsenal decided on new manager for next season?

Arsenal are claimed to be in advanced talks with a manager to replace Arsene Wenger at the helm next term.

The French boss has been in charge of the Gunners for over 20 years now, and has guided them through some tough financial times whilst assuring them of their place in Europe’s elite competitions.

Wenger famously guided his side, regularly considered the ‘Invincibles’, to finish the 2003-04 season without losing a single league match, but despite such a feat, has come under criticism from a small section of fans in recent years.

Certain fan groups attempted to initiate protests aimed at demanding change from the club, while a banner demanding the Frenchman out has also been spotted regularly at the Emirates.

Wenger’s contract is now set to expire in the coming summer, and with no new deal appearing to be on the line at present, the club are believed to be eyeing his replacement.

Massimiliano Allegri is now claimed to be in advanced talks with our club over a possible deal, having fallen out with a number of his current crop of players. The Italian has won the Italian division with Juventus in each of the last three seasons, having taken over from current Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, when he left them to join the Italy national side.

The current Juve boss is believed to be keen to go to battle with his counterpart, but is said to have failed to agree terms on the new job so far.

Leipzig manager Ralph Hasenhuttl and Bournemouth chief Eddie Howe have also been linked with the job, but the latter is maybe a little early in his career to making the jump up.

Is Allegri the ideal candidate to take over from Arsene?

    It is only a gut feeling, but Allegri doesn’t do it for me. I am sure he must be a good manager. You don’t win the Serie A without being a good manager. But what concerns me is this talk that he fell out with his star players. Player management is so important and wanting to leave because you don’t get along with your players is troubling. Mourinho blew up his relationship with his players at Real Madrid and then with Chelsea. No matter how good a manager you are, once you lose your players, managing becomes hard. Also, he is a relatively inexperienced manager.

    For me, Simeone would be ideal. He performs year after year on a low budget compared to Barca and Real, he has proven loyal to his club and his players give 100% for him. There is no guarantee he can do the same at Arsenal but I like these qualities.
