Juventus manager Max Allegri has calmed rumours that he is considering a move to Arsenal to replace Arsene Wenger once his reign in north London comes to an end.

The Frenchman, who celebrated his 20th year with the club this season, is yet to open talks over a new deal, with his current contract running out at the end of the season.

The Juve boss has been mooted as a potential replacement for Wenger, with reports suggesting that he has fallen out with the media in Turin, having not garnered the respect he feels he deserves for the job he has done.

Speaking after his side’s win over Serie A side Bologna the 49-year-old, who has been learning English, said it had nothing to do with the Arsenal job.

“It’s true, I’m studying English, but certainly not to go to Arsenal. Here at Juventus I’m fine.”

Whilst both the board at The Emirates and Wenger are yet to decided if they want a new deal, with many saying it hinges on the success of this season, the Frenchman must focus for what could still be a title challenge over the coming months.
