It seems that Arsene Wenger has completely lost the plot this season. His decision to bench superstar Alexis Sanchez against Liverpool was baffling and the Merseysiders thrashed the Gunners at Anfield.
The North Londoners are virtually out of the Champions League. They need more than a miracle to overcome a 5-1 deficit and beat Bayern at the Emirates.
The race for top four is tougher than ever and it will not come as any surprise if Arsenal fail to qualify for next season’s UCL. In such a scenario, the time has come for Wenger to finally leave the club.
According to reports (Sunday Express), Arsenal have already reached a verbal agreement to sign Wenger’s replacement in the form of current Juventus boss Max Allegri. The Italian boss will join if Arsene opts not to extend his stay with the Gunners.
The 49-year-old manager has denied such links but Express understands that Arsenal have been in talks with him for a few months now and Allegri is waiting for Wenger to decide his future.
Max has won Serie A titles with AC Milan and Juventus. He led the Old Lady to the Champions League final in 2015, where they lost to Barcelona.
As per the provided Express link, the former Rossoneri boss has been asked to hand a short list for transfers and he is keen on signing Serbian international Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
The 22-year-old Lazio player is a versatile talent who can effectively play as a central and attacking midfielder.
This season, in 28 games for the Italian side, the $19million rated (CIES) midfielder has scored 6 goals and provided 5 assists.
