Allegri fell out with several senior Juventus players according to a media outlet Mirror. It is understood that the Italian manager is looking to move out of Juventus after this season. There are reports that Allegri’s representatives have already had talks with Arsenal over a potential replacement for Arsene Wenger. Allegri is eyeing a move to become Arsenal manager next season if 69-year-old Wenger decides to step down from the managerial post.

Since 1996, Arsene Wenger has been the manager at Emirates and is currently the longest serving manager in the world. In his 20 year career with Gunners, Wenger has won just 3 Premier League titles and six FA Cup trophies. Wenger’s one noticeable achievement is winning the 2003-04 Premier League title without losing a single game which is still a record.

The reports from London suggest Arsenal will be looking to part ways with Wenger after the end of this season. The 49-year-old Juventus boss is tipped to be a perfect replacement for Gunners. Allegri believes he has lost his value in the squad and is now hoping to join Arsenal at the Emirates next season.

Since joining Juventus, Allegri has led the club to win two Serie A titles in the last two seasons. Juventus are currently first in the Serie A table with 45 points from 19 games, and also may even end up as champions this season. However, in his third season at Juventus, Allegri’s relationship with some of the senior players has raised some questions.

Recently Juventus lost the Italian Super Cup after a defeat to Allegri’s old side Milan. In addition to that, Juventus had a major set back last week when they faced a 2-1 defeat to Fiorentina. “It’s a bad setback for us, but we still have the chance to be four points clear and nobody thought we’d win the title in January,” Allegri told Mediaset Premium. “It’s going to be a battle and we need to fight it out for every single point from here on May 28. It won’t be easy.”
