Odds On The Next Permanent Arsenal Manager Have Tumbled
Max Allegri's odds of replacing Arsene Wenger have tumbled, according to Ladbrokes.
The bookies have slashed the Juve boss to 6/1 (from 16/1) in their Wenger replacement market, bringing the Italian in as the clear second favourite behind Eddie Howe at 3/1.
Allegri isn't the only Arsenal target to see his odds of coming to North London cut today, as Antoine Greizmann's price of making the switch to the Emirates halves to 4/1.
Following their Emirates FA Cup romp against Southampton, Arsenal are now 53/1 for a famous Premier League and cup double this season.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "Allegri's Arsenal odds have fallen significantly, thrusting him firmly into contention to replace Wenger. If the interest in the Juve boss continues at this pace, he could soon be the favourite for the job."
He added: "The Griezmann betting has also sprung to life again and plenty of transfer market watchers think the Gunners might pip United to the post when it comes to landing the striker."
