Potential managers for the Arsenal job
Unai Emery was sacked on Friday morning after their 2-1 loss at home to Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday that took their winless run in all competitions to seven.
A host of names have been mentioned as possible successors to Emery with the likes of Eddie Howe, Carlo Ancelotti and Nuno Espirito Santo mentioned.
Arsenal could look to replace Emery with a free agent with their ‘initial focus on candidates who are immediately available’.
‘Complicating matters is an apparent preference not to spend heavily on acquiring the next boss, which would be a problem for most people currently in management and possibly even for those who are not — depending on the terms of their severance agreements with previous employers.’
Allegri, who was interviewed for the job after Arsene Wenger left in 2018, has ‘concerns about the quality of Arsenal’s squad’ and wants to hang around until the summer to decide his future.
