Arsenal moved a step closer towards replacing Wenger

This is definitely the biggest clue so far that the Gunners will have a new manager at the beginning of next season

Juventus have approached Luciano Spalleti for the managerial role after current boss Max Allegri has given the Arsenal board a three-week-long ultimatum about making a decision on whether they’ll keep Arsene Wenger or move on.

Spalleti and Juventus reportedly have a verbal agreement should Allegri, who is very interested in the Arsenal post, be offered a deal by the North London club to take over the helm before the pre-season tour of Australia begins.

Arsenal is on the verge of yet another campaign full of mediocrity and no trophies with the FA Cup remaining the only chance to win some silverware to calm the nerves of the frustrated fan base. The Gunners will host non-league side Lincoln City later today in the FA Cup quarter-final and anything but a win would cause even more damage to Arsene Wenger’s reputation and legacy.

Wenger has been with the club since 1996, and the 67-year-old has no plans to retire, but neither is or the club can confirm that he’ll stay past his contract which ends in the summer.

Fans have been very vocal recently about their desire to see Wenger finally leave following the club’s humiliating back to back 5:1 losses to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Inter and the England national team are all possible future destinations for the Frenchman, but a stay at his current club is an option as well.
