Arsenal target Massimiliano Allegri is set to have talks with Juventus about his future at the club, once the Serie A campaign comes to an end.
Juventus are six points clear at the top of the table with only two games to play. They need a point at Roma next Sunday to win their seventh successive title.
Allegri is one of the names on Arsenal's shortlist of candidates to replace Arsene Wenger, as the club look set to begin a new era under fresh leadership.
Sky Sports News understands the Gunners want to appoint a new manager before the World Cup starts on June 14.
Allegri is set to sit down and undertake talks with Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli and chief executive Giuseppe Marotta.
Juventus want Allegri to stay but they would not stand in his way if he told them he wanted to leave and seek a new challenge.
"I have a great relationship with the club and we are in total sync which is being demonstrated in the last four years," Allegri said ahead of Juve's Coppa Italia final against AC Milan on Wednesday.
"The team was turned upside down after the first year and the club did very well to pair the existing group of good quality players with a group of new players.
"Apart from an amazing technical skill set, they have very solid values. At the end of the day you need that in football.
"So when it is all said and done we will sit at the table and plan the future as we have always done with a clear mind."
Allegri has one year left on his Juventus contract, and has been linked with a series of European clubs.
Juventus are playing Allegri's former club AC Milan in the Coppa Italia final on Wednesday, as they bid to end their season on a high with double silverware.
