Massimiliano Allegri wants to replace Arsene Wenger at the end of the season and build an ‘Arsenal dynasty’, according to The Sun.
The Italian, who has won back-to-back Serie A titles and is on course for a third this season, apparently feels under appreciated in his homeland and wants a new challenge.
Arsene Wenger’s contract runs out at the end of the season and is expected to bring his 20-year reign to an end. The report also claims that Allegri’s agent has already been in touch with Arsenal chiefs about taking the job on in the summer.
It is believed that Arsenal have drawn up a shortlist of potential replacements, with RB Leipzig boss Ralph Hasenhuttl and Bournemouth gaffer Eddie Howe reportedly high up on it.
Arsenal great Dennis Bergkamp and Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone are outside runners for the possible job.
