Tottenham are the ‘most plausible’ destination for Maurizio Sarri this summer, although Arsenal are another possibility.
That’s according to Gazzetta Dello Sport journalist Carlo Laudisa, who says both clubs could target the former Chelsea boss.
Sarri, who has been out of work since leaving Juventus last year, had looked like he would be taking the vacant manager’s post at Roma this summer before Jose Mourinho’s surprise announcement this week.
That has left him scrambling to find another offer and see which jobs may be available ahead of next season.
One of those is Tottenham, which was vacated by Mourinho by his sacking, while there is a growing sense that Arsenal could also be available after their disappointing exit from the Europa League this week.
And according to Laudisa, both are a possibility, although it is the former that is far more likely.
“Sarri could go to England,” he told Radio Punto Nuovo, relayed by Tutto Napoli.
“The Tottenham solution being the most plausible, but the Arsenal bench could also become free, as Arteta has missed all the Gunners’ season goals.”
It now remains to be seen if either club will move for Sarri or if he will even be interested in the move.
Recent reports in Italy had indicated he didn’t want a job in England because of his worries about the Coronavirus situation and travelling.
That’s not going to change too drastically in the coming months, which would indicate that Sarri would continue to say no.
An obsessive football manager like him can’t stay out of the game for too long, though, and perhaps that pull will lead him out of his comfort zone and back to the Premier League.
