The clock is running down on Arsene Wenger’s career at Arsenal if reports from London Evening Standard are to be believed.

The paper claims the north London club have lined up the Italian mastermind Carlo Ancelotti as Wenger’s replacement.

Frenchman’s position at the club will be reviewed in May despite the fact Wenger penned a new two-year deal just last summer. Wenger arrived in London back in October 1996 and went on to become the longest-serving manager in English top flight, surpassing Si Alex Ferguson’s record of most games in charge of a top-flight side.

The Italian media report that Carlo Ancelotti is looking towards Arsenal following his most recent Bayern Munich dismissal.

Trophy-laden tactician was sacked by Bundesliga champions after a series of poor results at Bayern Munich with the tipping point coming at the 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League group stage last week.

Bayern Munich decided to part ways with Ancelotti despite the Italian leading the Bavarians to the Bundesliga title last year. A string of below-par performances and a reported disagreement with some of the players at the club led to his sacking.

According to ESPN, Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti could return to England in search for a new challenge if he exits the Allianz Arena this season, and the Arsenal job is believed to be one he could end up pursuing.

Ancelotti won the German Bundesliga title and DFL Supercup in his first season in Germany, but there’s reports of discontentment behind the scenes after their early Champions League exit and failure to reach the German Cup final.

Arsene Wenger has stated the new season under pressure among Arsenal supporters following their poor start in the Premier League, and defeat to Chelsea on Sunday could almost make his position untenable.

Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti admitted the perennial Bundesliga champions are interested in Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, but admitted the Germans won’t over-pay for the Chilean who is out of contract the following summer. Sanchez is 7/1 to join Bayern this summer but the asking price and reported wage demands could be a stumbling block.

“If an opportunity comes up, the club will be ready. There are lots of rumours. Alexis is a great player but not the only one in the world. I like Alexis. There are possibilities in the transfer market, which can be in many directions,” said Ancelotti, reports the Mirror.

It’s the news any Arsenal fan would not want to hear after a disappointing Premier League season and just ahead an important clash for their team.

The Chilean’s representative is thought to be engaged in talks with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich with Chilean newspaper El Mercurio claiming that Fernando Felicevich has already in Germany for a round of negotiations with Bavarian giants.

Arsenal and Bayern Munich clash on Tuesday night in the Champions League last-16 second leg, as the home side look to recover some pride from the clash.

The Gunners suffered a 5-1 mauling in the first leg at the Allianz Arena in the first leg. The defeat was a shock to the Gunners system and made the second leg almost academic. The Gunners would need to defeat Bayern 4-0 or 6-1 to progress into the quarter-finals.

An Arsenal victory seems like an unlikely result, as the Gunners have won just three of their last 11 meetings against Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Two of those three wins have come on home soil.

Premier League giants Arsenal are one of the high-profile clubs showing interest in Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, Wolfsburg chief Klaus Allofs has confirmed.

It is no secret the Gunners are in the market for a new striker, and they have recently been linked with a move for the talented Spaniard, who is widely expected to quit los Blancos this summer.

And it appears that there is truth in transfer speculation, although Arsenal will have to fight off competition from Wolfsburg, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund if they want to get their man.

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal have made an approach to sign Real Madrid’s young striker Alvaro Morata. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is looking to strengthen his attacking options, after Theo Walcott was ruled out for six months through a cruciate ligament injury.


It is believed that Wenger would prefer to sign a short-term option in January and spend big in the summer. Morata has made fleeting appearances for Los Blancos, but has stiff competition for a place in Real’s attack, with the likes of Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo currently first choice in the Real attack.
