Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is under consideration at Arsenal.
GazzaMercato says Arsenal have already explored the possibility of a Mancini move by sounding the Italian out through intermediaries.
A huge week lies ahead for Arsene Wenger – first Arsenal travel to Liverpool on Saturday – then on Tuesday they’ll attempt to do the impossible in the Champions League and overturn a 5-1 deficit to Bayern.
Mancini is also being linked with Tottenham.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is in the frame for the Barcelona job – which could see Mancini return to England as his replacement.
