Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta 'given three games to save job with Max Allegri top target to replace under-fire manager'

MIKEL ARTETA has reportedly been given three games to save his Arsenal job.

Calciomercato claims Gunners chief and former player Edu Gaspar is ready to axe Arteta if results do not improve.

And former Juventus boss Max Allegri has apparently been lined up to take charge at the Emirates should Arteta go.

Arsenal have won just four of their opening 11 Premier League matches this term, leaving them 15th in the table,

The Gunners have also scored just ten goals, the fourth-lowest effort in the top flight.

And star men including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Willian and Alexandre Lacazette are struggling for confidence in an ever-changing tactical system.

Edu is now said to be considering sacking Arteta if he continues to fall flat over the Christmas period.

Indeed, the Spaniard is reported by Calciomercato to have just three league games to save his job.

That means Arteta will have to find results against Burnley, Southampton and Everton if he wants to remain at the helm.

And Allegri could now be waiting in the wings to take charge for a Carabao Cup quarter final against Manchester City before welcoming Chelsea in the league.

The 53-year-old masterminded Juventus to five consecutive Serie A titles and has been without a club since his exit in 2019.

Allegri also led AC Milan to their last title in 2011 and would certainly arrive with a reputation as a serial winner.

It now remains to be seen if Arteta can turn things around after leading Arsenal to victory in the FA Cup last season.
