Why Allegri is the Brilliant and the Natural choice to Replace the Irreplaceable Arsene Wenger and what Wenger thinks of himSo he seems to be the perfect replacement for Wenger. He has only two years left in his contract and has achieved almost everything he can at Juventus. Therefore he will be looking for a new challenge and the Arsenal job will be the most appropriate challenge for the Italian.
When or If he becomes the next manager for The Gunners, he will surely be inheriting a lot of pressure from the Gunners faithful, as they want their club back at the top of European football and being considered as European giants once again. Arsenal will surely be needing to add some reinforcements in their defense and midfield departments as well as find a permanent replacement for Petr Cech, so Allegri demanding a hefty budget should not come as a surprise to the Gunners bosses. However, The Gunners won’t be playing the Champions League next season and since they have a number of young and promising prospects in their squad, a large transfer budget is highly unlikely for any new upcoming manager. Another high profile candidate linked for this job is the former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique. He is looking for a job ever since leaving Barcelona last summer. He had a very successful three year stint at the Camp Nou, guiding them to Champions League glory and the famous treble in 2015. But according to reports from The Mirror, he will be asking around £15m after tax as salary and that will knock him out of the competition to replace Wenger at the Emirates. It is also reported that Enrique has demanded more than $250million transfer budget to overhaul squad and Arsenal are not willing to accept it, reports The Sun. Considering his salary and transfer budget demand he is one step behind Allegri for Arsenal manager post. Former Liverpool manager and current Celtic manager Brendon Rodgers is also in contention for the job after his successful period at Celtic. Most of The Gunners fans don’t want Rodgers at the Emirates according to the reports, so he will be behind Allegri and Enrique to land the job at Arsenal. Arsenal Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis wants a young emerging manager to replace Wenger instead of the above mentioned high profile names. So if it is true, then they have shortlisted former Arsenal legends Patrick Vieira and Mikel Arteta alongside 30-years old Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann and Liverpool assistant manager Zeljko Buvac although he is 56 years old but he is an emerging face in the managerial field.

Both Vieira and Arteta are linked up with Manchester City. Vieira is currently managing MLS outfit New York City FC which is bound with Manchester City and Arteta is currently deputy to Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola. According to reports, Manchester City has the final say to let either of them to join Arsenal or not. Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann is only 30 years old but he has proved his worth by guiding his club to qualify for Champions League for first time last season and is about to do it again for this season. He has been nick-named ‘Mini-Mourinho’ by former players as he is establishing himself as a very good tactician. London rivals Chelsea are also considering Nagelsmann as a potential replacement for Antonio Conte. So, he will really be a good choice for the Arsenal managerial job if they really want to replace Wenger with any young manager. So considering all reports and possibilities, we have listed the following managers as the likely candidates to get one of the most exciting and challenging job in European Football:
