Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal may have be having some pretty heavy competition in attempt to lure Massimiliano Allegri to overtake from Arsene Wenger in the next summer.
Per Calciomercato on Friday, the Emirates club are reportedly keen on getting a new manager to succeed the Frenchman as they’re preparing for the possibility of seeing Wenger leaving at the end of the season.
But besides having their North London rivals Tottenham also with an eye on the manager in case they lose Maurício Pochettino this summer, it seems that Barcelona have joined this battle too.
Especially after the 4-0 defeat to PSG in the Champions League, the Catalan club aren’t all that happy with Luis Enrique, so they would be considering the Juventus boss as well. The first contacts have already been made, the website says.
Allegri’s departure from Juventus has been reported for a few weeks now. It’s said that it’s just the end of a cycle, as the manager’s results in the past few seasons have been quite satisfactory on a league level.
