Juventus’s manager Allegri closes to sign Arsenal Star on free transfer

It was reported in recent weeks that Juventus and Jack Wilshere had mutual interest in a deal, with the Arsenal midfielder available on a free transfer this summer. The Bianconeri are no longer interested, according to Calciomercato.

The Italian outlet writes that the reigning six-time champions of Serie A are concerned by the 26-year-old's lengthy injury history. In addition, Wilshere reportedly demanded an annual salary of €6 million, a figure that would've unbalanced the club's wage structure.

It's reported that these same concerns also led AC Milan to end their interest in Wilshere, but that the England international remains of interest to multiple clubs in the Premier League.

- Arsene Wenger may have just announced his departure from Arsenal on Friday, but the Metro cites the Sun as reporting that the man in charge of the Gunners for the past 22 years is already set to hold talks with a pair of clubs. The 68-year-old Frenchman could be lined up as PSG's next manager, or even the club's technical director, while a return to Monaco -- where he won Ligue 1 in 1988 -- has also been mooted.

- Being lined up to replace Wenger in North London is former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique, according to the Independent, although the Arsenal hierarchy are said to be put off by the 47-year-old's wage demands, which are reportedly on par with the £8 million a year that Wenger is earning.

That report states that former Arsenal midfielders Patrick Vieira (in charge of MLS side New York City FC) and Mikel Arteta (a Manchester City assistant) are also being considered, alongside Schalke supremo Domenico Tedesco and 30-year-old prodigy Julian Nagelsmann of Hoffenheim. The Mirror also adds Juventus' Massimiliano Allegri, Monaco's Leonardo Jardim and Celtic's Brendan Rodgers to the list of potential appointees.

- Calciomercato reports that AC Milan are weighing up a summer bid for Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic, who's being linked with a move to the Chinese Super League.
