Vieira, Arteta IN as Arsenal shortlists 5 to replace Wenger

Massimiliano Allegri

"Patrick has a very good profile to replace Arsene Wenger".

I've spoken about my thoughts regarding Allegri before. "I do have a few more years in me". He is bold, and willing to sacrifice his pride in order to win games.

Arteta, now on Pep Guardiola's coaching staff at Manchester City, has been put forward as a candidate as a result of his work with the Premier League champions.

It is said that Agnelli and the Juventus board have already nearly made peace with Conte since their misunderstanding in 2014 and if Conte does leave Chelsea, Juventus is the only place he will go to.

Since Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger announced that he would be stepping down from his managerial position after 22 years on the job, the Gunners faithful were eager to know who the Frenchman's replacement would be.

He has spoken about his desire to manage in the Premier League before, although the language barrier could be a factor.

Wednesday's triumph makes it eight trophies in four years for Massimiliano Allegri in charge of Juventus and the ninth is surely just around the corner.

Joachim Low is also favoured by certain members of the hierarchy but with Arsenal keen to appoint a new manager before the start of the World Cup a move for the Germany boss may be hard, the report further claims.

He will get the best out of players like Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka, who are often criticized for being too luxurious.

But Petit, who won the Double with Arsenal in 1997/98, said: "I don't see it". Alejandro Moreno says that all the goodwill Arsene Wenger accrued from his farewell celebration went away after the embarrassing loss to Leicester City.

Neither Arsenal nor Chelsea may offer such an opportunity given how the Gunners have missed out on qualifying for next season's UEFA Champions League and the Blues could still fail to secure a place in the competition.
