Tottenham to face Arsenal competition in pursuit of Europa League-winning manager

Tottenham joined by Arsenal in race for Maurizio Sarri

According to Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Carlo Laudisa (h/t Daily Star), Arsenal have set their sights on Maurizio Sarri as a potential replacement for Mikel Arteta, with the Italian also being chased by Tottenham Hotspur.

Sarri, 63, has been without a job since he left Juventus at the end of the 2019/20 campaign after having led them to the Serie A title. Prior to that, the Italian tactician had done some fine work at Napoli, turning them into genuine challengers for the Serie A. That was followed by a season-long stint at Chelsea during which he won the UEFA Europa League and led them to a third-place finish in the Premier League.

Tottenham are on the lookout for a new manager since last month as Jose Mourinho was shown the doors after a decline in performances and results. While Ryan Mason has stepped in on an interim basis till the end of the season, the hunt for a new boss continues with much fervour. And, Sarri is one of the names that has been heavily linked with the job for a while now.

But, it seems like Arsenal have also entered the fray for his signing following a disastrous campaign that has put Arteta’s job under imminent threat. And Laudisa has claimed that there is a strong chance that Sarri could come to England this summer. (h/t Daily Star)

“Sarri could go to England. The Tottenham solution being the most plausible, but the Arsenal bench could also become free, as Arteta has missed all the Gunners’ season goals.”

This comes in spite of claims being made that Sarri wasn’t comfortable moving to England with the current situation due to the pandemic.

Sarri may not be a popular choice but the Italian did enjoy a good spell at Chelsea and did so while playing attacking, attractive football on the front-foot. With Arsenal also in the picture now, it will be interesting to see if Tottenham pursue the veteran or look elsewhere.
