Carlo Ancelotti is a ‘serious candidate’ to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager at the end of the season, according to the Evening Standard.
Wenger signed a new two-year contract in 2017, but Arsenal are concerned the long-serving Frenchman may decide to leave at the end of this season.
If he does, then Ancelotti, who was sacked by Bayern Munich in September, is a leading option to take charge, although the Italian is also a possibility for his former club Chelsea should Antonio Conte quit his Stamford Bridge post.
Fans have yet again been calling for Wenger to end his 21-year reign at the North London club after their embarrassing 4-2 loss against Nottingham Forrest in the FA Cup on Sunday.
And the bigwigs at the Emirates are said to be seriously considering managers who could take over from Wenger as he could quit at the end of the season.
