EPL: Why Ancelotti might not replace Wenger at Arsenal

  • Ancelotti will have to lift a nation who failed to qualify for this summer's World Cup in Russia

The highly-decorated veteran coach had been linked with some of this summer's biggest available club roles, including Chelsea if Antonio Conte exits and Arsenal, where Arsene Wenger has announced his departure.

Under 21 boss Luigi Di Biagio took over the reins on a caretaker basis after Ventura was sacked following Italy's World Cup heartbreak. They believe Ancelotti is the right man to take their squad forward for the Euros and next World Cup.

It will now be interesting to see what decision Ancelotti makes, but if Arsenal want to prize the Italian over to the Emirates they are going to have to act fast. He has already managed Chelsea in the past.

The reports claim Ancelotti was formerly offered the position on Monday night following a meeting with Italian Football Federation commissioner Roberto Fabbricini and sub-commissioner Alessandro Costacurta.

He has set a May 20 deadline to hire a coach in order to prepare for Italy's friendlies with Saudi Arabia, France and Netherlands at the end of May and start of June, followed by this autumn's Nations League and qualifiers for Euro 2020.
