According to Tuttomercatoweb, Arsenal boss Unai Emery is wanted by AC Milan, as Ivan Gazidis is interested in raiding former club for the manager this summer.
AC Milan have enjoyed a decent season under club legend Gennaro Gattuso, sitting fourth in the Serie A standings, potentially on the brink of a return to the Champions League.
Despite that, Gennaro Gattuso’s future seems unclear, with several coaches being linked with summer moves to San Siro – and a shocking rumour has emerged today.
Tuttomercatoweb claims that Rossoneri are now interested in Arsenal manager, as chief executive Ivan Gazidis is seemingly willing to raid his former club.
Ivan Gazidis announced he was leaving the Gunners for Milan in September 2018, assuming the role in December, and he is now eyeing up a move to lure Unai Emery away from Emirates Stadium.
Unai Emery joined Arsenal last summer, penning a £6 million-a-year contract, meaning he earns around £115,000 per week with the Premier League giants.
His first season has gone well, with the north London club competing for a Champions League spot in the first post-Arsene Wenger season, and more progress will be expected moving forward and with the addition of quality players.
A move to San Siro eems like something of a sideways switch right now, but the Italian giants may be able to offer a huge transfer budget as Ivan Gazidis plots a move.
Losing the manager after the exit of the Head of Recruitment will be a catastrophe for Arsenal as the Gunners have even struggled to replace Sven Mislintat for already two months.
