Enrique and Allegri the favourites for the Arsenal job 1

Posted on May 07, 2018 by David Nugent

Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and current Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri are the favourites to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, according to Sky Sports.

Wenger enjoyed a good send-off in his last home game of the season on Sunday, as the Gunners hammered Burnley. The clubs hierarchy has no doubt made moves behind the scenes to seek a quality replacement for Wenger.

Both winners at the top level

Enrique and Allegri are both proven winners at the top level of football. Barcelona won virtually every club trophy under Enrique, while Juventus have continued to dominate Serie A under Allegri. The Bianconeri also always do well in the Champions League.

According to the Daily Mail, former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is now the front-runner to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal boss this summer. The Frenchman is set to leave after 22 years in north London and Enrique is available after a short rest from football.

It would certainly be an interesting appointment for the Gunners, who will be looking for a return to the top-four next season.

History of winning trophies with a big club

While Enrique coaches the likes of Roma and Celta Vigo in his early years as a boss, it is his three-year stint at Catalan giants Barcelona that is best remembered. The former Spanish international won nine trophies in just three years, including winning La Liga twice and the Champions League on occasion.

By all accounts Hector Bellerin has been living a fairytale for the last few years – or, at least, that’s how it should seem. He moved to Arsenal from Barcelona at the age of just 16, and since that point, he’s been able to carve out a relatively successful career for himself in Arsene Wenger’s first team. He’s fast, is able to track back quickly, and at 23 years of age, he should have plenty of time left in the game at the highest level.

The rumour mill is always turning in the footballing world, especially now that we’re moving towards the back end of the domestic season. With the World Cup being just around the corner the transfer window may take a back seat for most over the coming months, but there’s still a few big-time stories floating around out there – and one of them is the potential transfer of Ousmane Dembele.

Is there more to the Hector Bellerin situation? 0

As it stands right now, Hector Bellerin is reportedly very happy at the Emirates and wants to remain at the club, despite many rumours suggesting otherwise. Whether you believe that or you don’t, at least we’ve got some clarity on the situation – at least, that’s what it seems like.

For years and years now agents have been coming out and providing the media with ‘statements’ from certain players, and then a few months later, something happens that completely contradicts what was said. A notable example would be Fabian Delph, who seemed to be the happiest man in the world at Villa Park before he jumped ship and joined Manchester City.

According to the Daily Star, former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is stalling on agreeing on a deal to become Chelsea boss because he would prefer a move to north London with Arsenal.

Speculation has continued over the future of Arsenal’s veteran boss Arsene Wenger. However, with the Gunners now in the last eight of the Europa League, it remains to be seen if the veteran Frenchman will leave the north London giants this summer.

Enrique an outsider for the job

According to the same report, Enrique has been discussed as a possible replacement for Wenger, if of course, the veteran boss does leave.

Surely Arsenal are not really making a move for Dembele? 0

According to London Football, Arsenal maybe monitoring Dembele, no not the Belgian midfielder who ambles around so effortlessly at Tottenham, but Barcelona’s young forward Ousmane Dembele.

The 20-year-old is regarded as one of the most exciting young players in the world game. He only moved to the Catalan giants last summer a deal worth over £90million.

Struggled for game time due to injuries

Unfortunately, for the youngster, he has struggled to make an impact at Barcelona due to injuries. His recent goal against Chelsea in the Champions League was the forward’s first for the Catalan club.

Could Arsenal be ready to sell Hector Bellerin? 0

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal could be willing to sell highly-rated full-back Hector Bellerin for a fee of £50million.

The Spanish international is highly regarded throughout Europe and was previously linked with a move to Manchester City and return to Barcelona, where he came through the world famous La Masia academy.

Struggled to find his best form

Arguably, Bellerin has struggled to find his best form in recent seasons. He has even spent time out of the team both this season and at the end of the last campaign.

Gunners are said to be eyeing Paris Saint-Germain youngster Yacine Adli, according to fresh reports emerging from L’Equipe.

The north London club will face tough competition for the signature of this highly-rated 17-year-old with Barcelona, Manchester City and Juventus all said to be keeping close tabs on him.

Adli is representing the French heavyweights in the UEFA Youth League this season where he’s made a string of compelling performances in an attacking midfield position. The young star made 11 appearances for PSG in this competition, adding one goal in the process.

According to the reports coming from the Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal are interested in Barcelona teenage sensation Pablo Moreno.

The 15-year-old striker is enjoying a rather prolific spell with the Catalan club in the Cadet A division where he is currently the leading goal scorer with 18 goals in his tally.

Described as a player with ‘killer instinct’, Pablo Moreno has already attracted plenty of interest from some of Europe’s leading clubs – most notably Premier League rivals Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.
