Arsenal enjoyed a fantastic January transfer window, but many still believe Arsene Wenger is the one holding back the Gunners’ potential, even with a new look attack.

Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti has been mentioned as a potential replacement for the Frenchman, and here are three reasons why he would be a brilliant appointment.

Arsenal have been laying the foundations for a head coach to be purely involved in the first-team squad, with limited influence on scouting talent and negotiating contracts, having employed Head of Recruitment, Sven Mislintat, and Head of Football Operations, Raul Sanllehi.

This is perfect for Ancelotti, who has operated under this system in many previous jobs. The 58-year-old was head coach at Chelsea between 2009-2011, having little to no say on what players came in and out of the club.

It was a similar situation at Real Madrid between 2013-15, with president Florentino Perez pulling all the strings. There’s no reason why it can’t work with Arsenal too.
