Arsenal set to miss out on No 1 Wenger replacement

Massimiliano Allegri

Arsenal need to make the right decision when it comes to the matter of replacing Arsene Wenger this summer.

As such, Marotta insists that it is the club's priority to keep a hold of Allegri once the league has been won, despite reports linking the current man in charge to a move to Arsenal. Plenty of names have been in the hat to replace Wenger as the suspense builds with every passing day.

Wenger is leaving the Gunners at the end of the season after nearly 22 years in charge, and Arsenal's majority shareholder Stan Kroenke is understood to have been updated about the search for their next manager over the weekend.

However, Juve's board are still harbouring hope of using their excellent relationship with Allegri to convince him to stay in Turin for at least one more season and see out the final year of his contract.

"They can't have the same philosophy as Arsene Wenger".

Vieira has enjoyed success as coach of MLS franchise New York City since being appointed to his first senior role in 2016 and recently said he was "ready to coach any side in Europe". "He's very good next to Pep Guardiola on the bench at Manchester City".

Wenger's own future is unclear and while the 68-year-old is understood to have received a number of job offers, he could also decide to take a break from football.

The north London club are now the only side in English football's top four divisions not to pick up a single point away from home in 2018, and Wenger will be looking to rectify that statistic this weekend.

Pires insists he will be looking at changing that at Huddersfield on Sunday rather than anything further ahead.

"When we talk about Arsene Wenger, the most important thing is to talk about the positives". "There are all the prerequisites to continue on this path with him and reach even more important targets".
