Piers Morgan has told Arsenal to make moves to appoint either Carlo Ancelotti or Massimiliano Allegri as their new manager.

The Gunners are currently on the lookout for a new boss after they opted to sack Unai Emery at the end of last month following a poor start to the season.

Arsenal have only won four of their opening 15 games in the Premier League so far this season to leave them well off the pace in the race for Champions League qualification.

The north London side had been credited with an interest in appointing Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers as their new manager.

However, the Northern Irishman signalled his commitment to the Foxes on Friday when he signed a new five-and-a-half year deal with his current club.

Now, celebrity Arsenal fan and former Daily Mirror editor Morgan has urged the Gunners to focus their attentions on landing either Ancelotti or Allegri as soon as possible.

Reacting to the news of Rodgers’ new deal on Twitter, Morgan posted: “Damn it. Right @Arsenal – move for Ancelotti or Allegri. Fast.”

Arsenal are currently preparing for their trip to West Ham United in the Premier League on Monday night.

The north London side are aiming to bounce back to winning ways after the disappointment of their 2-1 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion on Thursday.
