Arsenal make Massimiliano Allegri top target to replace Wenger

Arsenal 3-1 AC Milan (Aggregate 5-1): Player Ratings

Well after the shambles of Arsenal's last home game in this competition, when they almost blew it against Ostersund, Arsene Wenger will play a strong line-up with a free weekend to follow.

There has been much speculation over the future of the Frenchman, even after being handed a two-year contract extension last year, which could see his tenure at the club stretch to 23 years.

Wenger was reported to be experiencing sleepless nights due to his side's performances on the pitch, but the manager remains determined to continue in north London.

The Gunners have been on a awful run of form in the Premier League, losing their last four encounters, but defeated Milan 2-0 in the first leg of their Europa League knockout encounter on Thursday.

Viera was part of that Invincibles side in the 2003/04 season, and is considered to be one of the best central midfielders to have ever played in the Premiership. "But after what happened in that week (against City) it's a bit understandable".

"I think if it's the end of the story, he'll be the first to recognize it", he told L'Equipe.

"And I would like to add that in relation to everything he has done for the club, in relation to what he has built and what he has won, he is legitimate enough to decide for himself when he will retire. He has the right to take that decision himself".

Viera also recalled how Wenger turned down the opportunity to manage other huge clubs in order to labour on with the Gunners. "If there really is someone who loves this club and wants this club to succeed, it's Arsene". I'll be shocked if he didn't get a good job, I'd be quite shocked if he didn't get the Arsenal job'.

The Gunners are set to host AC Milan in the second leg of their last-16 tie on Thursday and are favourites to progress after winning 2-0 at the San Siro in the reverse leg last week.
