Allegri or Ancelotti for Arsenal?

Former Juventus boss Max Allegri and Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti have emerged as contenders to succeed Unai Emery at Arsenal.

Last night’s 2-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League proved to be the Spaniard’s last game in charge of the Gunners, and now the club is looking for a replacement.

The Telegraph reports Arsenal are looking at Ancelotti, who is going through a difficult period at the San Paolo.

However, the Partenopei would be entitled to significant compensation as the 60-year-old is contracted to Napoli until 2021.

That is reflected in the odds, the best of which see him priced at 25/1.

On the other hand, Allegri has moved up the market, positioned as the fourth favourite with a best price of 10/1.

The ex-Milan tactician remains out of work since leaving Juventus over the summer and was linked with the Arsenal job before Emery took it in May 2018.

Right now, the bookies’ hot tip is Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo, who is as short as odds-on.

Despite being a farfetched appointment, Inter coach Antonio Conte is priced at 25-1 by one major bookmaker.
