Next Arsenal manager odds see new favourite as Buvac slides out of contention

There has been yet another change at the top of the betting for the next Arsenal manager, as interest in Zeljko Buvac cool significantly. The Liverpool assistant manager had come from nowhere to be installed as favourite to replace Arsene Wenger, but now the Bosnian has slid down the odds list.

Replacing Buvac as favourite is Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, who is now a substantially shorter price than his closest contenders at just 6/4. The Italian has won three Serie A titles with Juve and one previous one with AC Milan, and is reportedly keen on a move to England.

Directly behind Allegri in the betting is former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique, who is currently out of work. The Spaniard is currently rated at 6/1 to replace Wenger at the Emirates, although he is also considered a leading contender to take the Chelsea job this summer. Enrique is joint-favourite to succeed Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge, alongside Maurizio Sarri at 5/2.

Carlo Ancelotti remains in the running at 8/1 and then comes Buvac at 10/1, alongside former Arsenal skipper Mikel Arteta. The Spaniard is currently a coach at Manchester City and has no managerial experience, but has been one of the favourites to succeed Wenger since the Frenchman announced his imminent departure.

Also still in the hunt for the Arsenal job are the likes of Brendan Rodgers, Leonardo Jardim and Joachim Low, all of whom are 25/1 or shorter to take the role.
