EPL: Arsenal Zero Down On Two Managers To Replace Emery

Arsenal

Struggling English Premier League side, Arsenal have identified Massimiliano Allegri and Mikel Arteta as the perfect candidates to replace underfire manager, Unai Emery.

Emery has overseen a miserable start to the 2019/2020 Premier League season, with the Gunners already six points off Champions League spots.

Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw at the Emirate to Wolves on Saturday, with pressure mounting on Unai Emery.

The Gunners were also knocked out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, as they let a two-goal lead slip to draw 5-5 with a youthful Liverpool side before losing on penalties.

The Arsenal manager has only been able to guide his players to two victories in nine outings, continuing the disastrous form they ended last season.

Mirror Sport reports that while the board are committed to giving Emery time to turn things around, they have expressed interest in Allegri and Arteta.

Mikel Arteta, was strongly linked with the job in north London before Emery’s appointment and Allegri won five Serie A titles and four Coppa Italias during his spell at Juventus, before leaving the Italian giants earlier in the year.
