Arsenal have entered into talks on a deal to bring Maurizio Sarri back to the Premier League as a replacement for Mikel Arteta, Football Italia reported.

Well, it has certainly been a strange day for the managerial movements.

Absolutely no one woke up Tuesday morning expecting to see José Mourinho sign a contract with a new club.

Just hours after Roma confirmed Paulo Fonseca’s departure, it was announced that the Portuguese would take over the Italian giants in time for next season.

It was no surprise to see Fonseca leave. That had been on the cards for a while.

But if anyone was going to replace the former Porto manager, it was supposed to be Maurizio Sarri.

Calciomercato claimed just days ago that Sarri and Roma were getting closer to a deal, with the 62-year-old chain smoker demanding a £ 4 million a year contract at the Stadio Olimpico.

Now, Mourinho has closed that door in Sarri’s face. But that doesn’t mean the 2020 Serie A champion will be out of work for much longer.

Because Football Italia reports that Arsenal suddenly opened talks with Sarri, some two years after his Chelsea team beat Unai Emery’s Gunners 4-1 in the Europa League final.

The report adds that Sarri will replace the increasingly criticized Arteta, who may come out of his misery at the end of a bleak 2020/21. Arsenal are currently holding on to a place in the top half and facing an uphill battle to reach the Europa League final as well.
