Arsenal continue to be hotly linked with Juventus manager Max Allegri who has reportedly agreed a verbal agreement to take charge of the club next summer, should Arsene Wenger decide to step down from his position at the Emirates (Daily Express).

However, other media outlets have today (Monday) rubbished these rumours, although speculation remains rife that Allegri will venture over to North London in the summer.

Wenger, who has been offered a two-year extension, is set to make a decision on his future by the end of the month.

Gunners supporters are waiting with bated breath.

Reported target Allegri is currently bidding to lift the Italian title for the third successive season, and few would bet against the 49-year-old from achieving this feat with the Old Lady eight points clear at the Serie A summit with 11 matches remaining.

Should the Arsenal post open up for the first time in over 20 years then Allegri, the 13/8 favourite (Sky Bet) in the betting, would no doubt be keen to test his credentials in England's top-flight, which is currently home to the likes of Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho.

Many Arsenal fans believe that the time is right for Wenger to finally vacate his post come the end of the campaign.

This season the Frenchman has come under pressure like never before, with the Wenger Out brigade appearing to swell in numbers as the weeks go by.

Arsenal's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool, the club's third loss in four games, leaves them 5th in the table, 13 points adrift of league leaders Chelsea, and one point outside of the top-4.

Realistically the FA Cup remains Arsenal's only remaining chance of silverware, with the Gunners aiming to win the competition for the third time in four seasons.

However, before they attempt to reach the semi-finals (they face non-league Lincoln on Saturday) the club lock horns with German giants Bayern Munich in the second-leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.

Wenger's men capitulated in the second-half if the first-leg, before slumping to a shocking 5-1 defeat, which leaves their hopes of progressing through to the quarter-finals in tatters.
