Arsenal trigger Allegri war with Chelsea

Arsenal managerial target Massimiliano Allegri is reportedly set for a sit-down with Juventus about his future at the club, once the Serie A 2017/18 campaign comes to an end.

Allegri's side are six points clear at the top of the table with only two games to play. They need a point at Roma next Sunday to win their seventh successive title.

Allegri is one of the names on Arsenal's shortlist of candidates to replace Arsene Wenger, as the club look set to begin a new era under fresh leadership.

Sky Sports say the Gunners want to appoint a new manager before the World Cup starts on June 14.

Allegri is set to sit down and undertake talks with Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli and chief executive Giuseppe Marotta.

Juventus want Allegri to stay but they would not stand in his way if he told them he wanted to leave and seek a new challenge.

Allegri has one year left on his Juventus contract, and has been linked with a series of European clubs.
