The former Manchester City coach has admitted that he has a soft spot for the north London club and says he would “love” to take charge at Emirates Stadium.
I would have loved to have managed Arsenal, a club with a special charm
And the 49-year-old, who has recently returned for a second spell as Inter Milan manager, admits that he would be open to taking over from Wenger at the club.
“Ten years ago I would have chosen Serie A but now I would have to say the Premier League”, Mancini told Corriere dello Sport.
“I would have loved to have managed Arsenal, a club with a special charm. But there is still time.
He added: “Where do I see myself at 60? As coach of the Italian national team.”
