Legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had stepped down from the helm of affairs at Arsenal before the start of the 2018/19 season. The French citizen has since then been on a break from a managerial role. He, however, occasionally appears on broadcast networks as a commentator. Recent reports are now claiming that Wenger is perhaps close on making a comeback to a managerial role and join Serie A giants AC Milan.
According to a report published in La Gazzetta dello Sport, Arsene Wenger may well go on to join AC Milan. Milan have had a forgettable start to the season under newly appointed manager Marco Giampaolo and are trailing way behind at the points tally, sitting at the sixteenth position. They have already lost four matches out of the six games they have played so far.
Reports are also claiming that AC Milan meanwhile are perhaps on the verge of sacking manager Giampolo. The former Champions League legends find themselves dangerously close to the relegation zone despite spending heavily in the summer transfer window.
AC Milan have reportedly identified Arsene Wenger as a potential replacement for Giampolo, with the former having some prior connections with Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis.
Other options being considered by AC Milan for the managerial role are Massimiliano Allegri and Luciano Spalletti.
