Arsenal Eyeing Serie A Manager: Is He The Right Fit For The Gunners?

Arsenal’s shortlist for managerial replacement of Arsene Wenger keeps getting extended further and further as Juventus’ Massimiliano Allegri gets added to that list. Speculation has been rife after the shambolic season the Gunners have endured and it would not be the unlikeliest of occurrences for Wenger to make a club exit following the 2017/18 campaign.

Realistically looking at the situation at Arsenal and their board’s relation with Wenger, there is no telling as to when the Frenchman would actually leave but replacing a man of Wenger’s magnitude would mean that the club would need to go through a thorough transition to overcome the hangover of the post-Wenger era.

Despite all his follies, if there is one thing Arsene Wenger has done well for sure it would have to be his man management of young talent. The Frenchman has always been keen on taking in the raw talent and drilled them through the rigorous course of learning and progressing and turned them into future stars of tomorrow.

Things at the club otherwise have not really gone down well in the recent years. The club has been deprived of success in terms of trophies and with major players leaving almost every other transfer window, there has been a question on Arsenal’s eligibility as a top European club.

The current campaign has seen the club delve down to further depths with over 8 losses registered in the first couple of months of the year alone. Their inability to mount a comeback into the Champions League has caused great uproar along with the series of embarrassing losses to local rivals. Their away record has been shambolic in the league with just 3 games won in 15 while at the same time racking up even more humiliation by losing to lower division opponent in the FA Cup.

Allegri has done a terrific job at Juventus, winning three consecutive Serie A titles in Turin. He has also furthered the progress of the Italian team on the European front, taking them to two Champions League finals, something Juventus were unsuccessful at under their previous manager, Conte.

Allegri’s achievements are further heightened by the fact that he took over from Conte’s winning team and smoothly moulded it over the years into his own without causing any hiccup. With his contract set to run till 2020 and Juventus progressing to the Quarter Final stage of the UEFA Champions League this season, the Serie A outfit will not want to part ways with their manager and Arsenal would have to offer a substantial amount to lure Allegri.
