London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea will reportedly compete for one former Bayern Munich boss in the summer.
According to a report from the Daily Express, the Premier League duo are eyeing Carlo Ancelotti as their manager for next season.
The report claims that Ancelotti wants a return to England, and with uncertainty surrounding the futures of Arsene Wenger and Antonio Conte, it could well be that an opportunity presents itself in London.
The former AC Milan and Real Madrid coach has been out of a job leaving Bayern Munich in September, and is apparently now living in London again, fuelling the rumours.
Lois Langton, chair of the Arsenal Independent Supporters’ Association recently voiced her support for hiring Ancelotti.
“I think that many supporters would say, if asked, that Ancelotti would be the stand-out candidate in the event that the current manager steps down,” she said.
“He has the status, nous, expertise and experience of the Premier League and you would like to think would bring with him the defensive and tactical acumen that would address some of our long identified problems.”
