Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has announced that he will remain in Turin with job postings at Arsenal.
After the Mirror 's John Cross, the Italian is a target for Arsenal when looking for Arsene Wenger's successor, and he has previously expressed an interest in managing in the Premier League, but for now he wants to stay.
"Will I stay with Juve?" Allegri said. "Yes, I have a contract to honor, and if they do not release me, I will stay with Juventus next year."
Series A expert James Horncastle recently submitted other comments from Allegri to Rai Sport, in which he also seemed to encourage his desire to continue with the old lady:
James Horncastle @ JamesHorncastle  Allegri is pretty chippy on RAI when asked if it's the end of a cycle and what Juve's limits are. Asks the question of absurdity, says the team can still improve, the [re] build is not over yet and "we will fight for the title next season."
The coach has just won his fourth consecutive league and cup with the Bianconeri, and he was also the last man to win Juve's Serie A title when he won the title with AC Milan canceled in 2011.
One of the hallmarks of his reign in the club was the defensive solidity of the team they have proved this season in the Coppa Italia:

This kind of resilience could have a transformative effect on Arsenal: The Gunners delivered 51 goals in the Premier League this season, a record not only of the top five, but also Burnley and Newcastle United.
James Dodd of Fox Sports believes Allegri would make that Eir defense a priority:

Pretty sure that if Allegri appointed as the next Arsenal manager his immediate attention would improve to this defense. Chiellini would be a nice addition … ? #AFC
The 50-year-old still seems to have unfinished business in Turin, it seems that Arsenal has to look elsewhere for the man to replace Wenger.
Allegri hopes to make Juventus a success in the UEFA Champions League after failing in 2015 and 2017. Arsenal will not be in sixth season after next season.
