Napoli desires a coaching change, an idea coming from president Aurelio de Laurentiis, especially as the matches become more important. The club is on the verge of advancing to the round of 16 in the Champions League on Tuesday evening, as afterwards, the departure of Carlo Ancelotti is all but sealed. The replacement coach at Napoli is likely to be Gennaro Gattuso, the hottest name at the moment for the job.
While Napoli's decision making appears set, Ancelotti could be involved in a counter-move away from Italy. There is serious interest from Arsenal, who are looking for a permanent replacement for Unay Emery. The Gunners have a strong interest in the Italian, who woud be free to pursue a job in the Premier League after his Napoli exit.
