Massimiliano Allegri has remained coy when quizzed about the possibility of taking over at Arsenal ahead of next season.

The Juventus manager has been touted as one of the leading candidates to take over from Arsene Wenger at The Emirates this summer after the Frenchman announced that he will be stepping down at the end of the season.

According to the Daily Express, Allegri is the clear favourite to become the next Arsenal manager, with the likes of Luis Enrique and Mikel Arteta having also been linked with the job at The Emirates.

However, the man himself has remained coy when quizzed about his situation and said that he would only consider his future at the end of the season.

Allegri is quoted as saying by the Daily Express: “At the end of the season, we’ll sit down and talk as we always do and plan for the future.

“Because we have to do that every year and this has to be done with great clarity.

“I have changed a lot over the last four years, but also every year, every day.

“What I ask my players is to every day challenge themselves to find what we did wrong and what we can improve.”

Meanwhile, Arsenal are preparing for their final Premier League game under Wenger when the Gunners travel to Huddersfield on the final weekend of the season.

The north London club are set to miss out on a top-four finish for the second season running and will have to make do without Champions League football once again next term.

The Gunners have not lifted the Premier League trophy since 2004.
