Everton reportedly want Arsene Wenger to take club's manager role


GETTY Arsenal have identified Carlo Ancelotti as their back-up plan

It's been over two weeks since Arsene Wenger confirmed he will step down as Arsenal manager at the end of the season, yet the future of both parties remains unclear.

It's an all Premier League Daily Acca for Paul Robinson tonight and the treble pays over 11/1. Wenger heads to the King Power Stadium with the Gunners on Wednesday with Juventus' Max Allegri or former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique tipped to replace him. Leicester are in miserable form and they followed up their 5-0 defeat at Selhurst Park with a 2-0 loss at home to West Ham on Saturday.

Everton fans have grown disillusioned with Allardyce's style of play since he took over, so it makes sense that the club's owners want to bring in someone with a more attractive philosophy.

The 68-year-old says he has received "more offers than expected" since announcing he will step down as Gunners manager after almost 22 years in charge.

One thing that is for certain is that Wenger will not be finished with football and, having professed his surprise at the number of job offers he has received since the announcement he was leaving, he stressed that he did not want his age to be a factor. It's possible for tomorrow because we play again on Sunday and some of them played in Madrid on Thursday and then on Sunday.

Arsene Wenger's side suffered an bad start after falling a goal behind to Kelechi Iheanacho on 14 minutes before having young defender Tinos Mavropanos sent off for hauling down the goalscorer a minute later to be sent-off.

The Gunners are set to finish in sixth place in the Premier League table this season to miss out on Champions League football for the second successive campaign.

The Frenchman's long reign will conclude after his last two matches against the Foxes and Huddersfield Town.

It's a game that's a dead rubber in more ways than one. They haven't won a trip away in the Premier League since the end of December, but that thrashing of Burnley at the weekend will have boosted their confidence, after their disappointing Europa League exit.
