Italian football club, AC Milan, as it turned out, have 'secret weapon' to bring in former coach of Arsenal, Arsene Wenger.
Milan, coached by Gennaro Gattuso this season, appeared less impressive. So, they are still stuck in fifth place in the Italian Serie A standings.
Meanwhile, Milan have also not won in the last four matches in the Italian Serie A, this is what makes Milan would not hesitate to fire Gattuso.
As news circulating, Gattuso is given two more match opportunities to improve Milan's performance. If it doesn't change, then it's likely that Gattuso will be fired.
According to reports in Italy, as a substitute for Gattuso, Milan itself has a number of targets that are quite famous, one of which is the former Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger.
Wenger hinted back in October that he would be making a return to management in 2019.
He said: "I believe that [I'll] start again on January 1. I don't know yet [where I'm headed]. I am rested, and I am ready to work again."
Wenger is a manager who has long handled Arsenal. The Frenchman spent his career at Arsenal for about 22 years.
Milan glanced at Wenger because he was known as a coach who liked to promote many talented young players at Arsenal. Meanwhile, for Milan itself, it seems to be easy to bring Wenger to the San Siro.
Because, Milan has a 'secret weapon' to persuade Wenger. It is well-known Milan's latest CEO, Ivan Gazidis has a closeness with Wenger at Arsenal at the time.
The Frenchman has already said no to the likes of Monaco and Fulham, as he wants to get back on track with a more prestigious club. With that said, he could decide to say 'yes' to the Rossoneri.
Gazidis and Wenger also used to work together, because he often helped Arese wenger in Arsenal's transfer plan for the few years ago.
