LONDON. – Arsene Wenger is set to land his first job since leaving Arsenal, with Italian Serie A soccer club AC Milan in line to appoint the Frenchman.
The former Arsenal boss has been without a job since he called time on his 22-year stay with the Gunners – but he hinted last week he is set to return.
“I believe I will start again on 1 January,” Wenger recently told SportBILD.
“I don’t know yet. I am well rested and ready to work again.”
Now according to France Football, Wenger has been in negotiations for several weeks about taking charge of Milan. The club are desperately trying to return to the Champions League but results have been far from what investors Elliott Management Corporation are expecting.
Billionaires and Elliott Management Corporation owners Paul and Gordon Singer are said to be disappointed with Gennaro Gattuso, who took over from Vincenzo Montella in November 2017. He had his contract extended in April this year but the mega-rich double act, who are also Arsenal supporters, now want to bring Wenger on board to move the club forward.
