Who will replace Arsène Wenger as Arsenal coach?

We teamed up with John Wolff, Premier League expert at FootballPredictions.com to look at the contenders to be Arsenal boss next season.

According to John, time is ticking away for Arsène Wenger. Arsenal fans have lost their patience with the Frenchman while many pundits suggest he will not be in charge at the Emirates next season.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is regarded as favourite to be Arsenal’s new boss. However,  the likes of Luis Enrique, Thomas Tuchel and Thierry Henry are on the list as well. Wenger’s contract expires at the end of the season but who will take over reins at Arsenal?

Massimiliano Allegri

Max Allegri has been doing a great job with Juventus ever since he joined the club in July, 2014. The Italian tactician is on track to win his third consecutive trophy with the Bianconeri.

Allegri is reportedly interested in moving to England and is keen to manage Arsenal. The Italian media report that he has already told Juve’s board that he wishes to leave at the end of the season.

The Juventus boss told Arsenal board that he wants Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as his first signing if he takes over. With a fee of £35m quoted, it’s a strong statement on his part.

Juve rely on their rock-solid defence under Allegri and no doubt the former Milan coach would stick to this style of play. Reports suggest Allegri has verbally agreed a deal with Arsenal to take over from Arsène Wenger b this summer. The club has yet to confirm this.

Thomas Tuchel

With the Bundesliga out of reach,  Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel is heavily linked with a move to Arsenal.

The German is hungry for success and is the young, talented coach Arsenal need. His career path followed that of Jurgen Klopp and like his mentor, he sees the Premier League as a challenge to embrace.

While Arsenal were humiliated by Bayern Munich last night, Tuchel has guided Dortmud to the brink of the last eight in the Champions League. They entertain Benfica next week to decide their Round of Sixteen tie.

Thierry Henry

According to reports, Josh Kroenke favours former Arsenal attacker Thierry Henry as the next manager at the Emirates.

Will Arsenal’s all-time record goalscorer return to the Emirates Stadium? He lacks the experience needed to take the job on his own with many preferring a double-act with Wenger as director of football.

Henry is currently working as Belgium national team assistant coach, but has yet to pass his UEFA Pro License. It’s hard to see him becoming new Arsenal manager.

Luis Enrique

Luis Enrique recently announced that he will step down as Barcelona coach at the end of the season. It’s no surprise he is on Arsenal’s radar. Wenger rejected moves to Spain in the past but now is a leading candidate for new Barca head coach.

Bookmakers price the former Roma and Celta Vigo coach at 16/1 as next Arsenal boss.

While the likes of Eddie Howe, Brendan Rodgers, Patrick Vieira and Joachim Low are also on the Arsenal shortlis, these five are the front runners . But, as things stand now, Max Allegri is favourite to be in charge of the team next season.

  1. Reports both before and after the match say Arsene has told the players he’s off in the summer.

    Didn’t watch the match but watched the highlights the chatted with my former youth manager and for the first time he cried at whats taking place, I shed a tear for him and the club as I completely understood his love and mine as well for Arsenal. As the man who introduced me to this great club, it really is a sad state of affairs what is/has taken place.
