Arsenal could go after former Chelsea manager if they sack Mikel Arteta – Reports




Former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is reportedly one of the first managers Arsenal could go after they could fire Mikel Arteta.

The Gunners have not been consistent this season. Although they beat their rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the previous game, they are currently tenth in the Premier League table.

Arsenal are ten points behind Chelsea, who are ranked last in the Champions League, and they seem to have to win the Europa League to secure European football for next season.

Mikel Arteta managed to cope with the slide that kept Arsenal close to the bottom half of the table in the first half of the season. Despite this, Calciomercato they claim that the gunners will turn to Sarri to take power if they decide to fire Arteta in the future.

Arsenal are not the only ones chasing Maurizio Sarri

Maurizio Sarri will not yet return to management after Juventus sacked him in the summer of 2020. He is wanted by several clubs, and like AC Milan, Roma and Napoli should follow him if they decide to change management.

Sarri had previously managed Napoli, and the club almost won the Serie A title under his leadership. However, in the end they fell Juventus.

The Italian tactician also had mixed spells at Chelsea before joining Juventus. In 2019, he lifted the Europa League trophy with the Blues.

Sarri is known for his possession-based football and with good players this philosophy works well. Mikel Arteta is trying to apply more of the same at Arsenal. However, with a limited budget and poor players, there was a lot of hiccups on the way.

It remains to be seen how the fans will react if Arsenal fire Arteta and hire Sarri. He is the first favorite Emirates fan, as he led the Gunners to the FA Cup and Community Shield last year.

The results have been uneven for Arsenal this season, but we could see them much better if they sign a few more experienced players in the back and midfield.
