Arsenal wants Max Allegri to become their next manager after they fired Unai Emery.
The Gunners had been on a bad run of form under the Spaniard with most of their fans calling for his sacking.
However, the club waited for him to play seven games without a win before they axed him.
He has since been replaced by Freddie Ljungberg, but the Swede is only there temporarily.
Reports from the Express claims that the Gunners have started looking at managers who can take the position of their head coach permanently.
According to the report, the Gunners have approached former Juventus manager, Max Allegri to become their next manager, but the Italian has turned them down.
Allegri has just left Juventus where he won five consecutive league titles. He has been replaced by Maurizio Sarri and has decided to take the year off as a sabbatical.
The Gunners reportedly enquired about him becoming their next manager, but he told them “No”
The same report claims that the Italian has decided to stay out of the game until next season and he is determined to stick to that decision.
Arsenal may well be hoping that Ljungberg does a good job so that gives them the breathing space until the summer to get Allegri.
It was always going to be unlikely that Allegri would take the job at this moment in time, he appears to be a determined man and it would have taken a very attractive package to persuade him. Sadly, I am not sure that Arsenal is that attractive an option right now.
