The current Juventus manager seems nailed on favourite to become the next Arsenal manager by most in the media and in the bookies and for good reason. Having won Serie A titles with both AC Milan and Juventus along with guiding Juventus to a runners up place in the Champions League in his first season as manager for the Old Lady, Allegri is no stranger to success.
While detractors to Allegri may point to the fact that he has been successful at Juventus due to the gap in quality between them and the rest of Serie A, Allegri has managed to build upon the work of Antonio Conte and has seen Juventus transition to a team that is wonderful in attack while also maintaining a solid defence, Allegri has transformed Juventus from a team that dominated the league but were rather underwhelming in Europe into a team that has the capabilities to challenge for the Champions League.
Allegri may suit Arsenals style very well and what the supporters expect the club to play on the pitch. There wouldn’t be a massive transformation on the pitch with the players having to adapt to a different style but rather Allegri would just have to upgrade and build on what is already there.
The added benefit for Arsenal is that Allegri tactically is flexible, while he is known for playing with 3-5-2 formation at Juventus, Allegri has also played with a 4-3-2-1 formation with Juventus this season so he will not be found trying to stick players into a formation or play style that they simply aren’t able to play. This would be a welcome benefit for Arsenal supporters who have seen Wenger stubbornly persist with the same tactics and formations over the years despite proving that it doesn’t benefit the team.
