Allegri, the French publicaion write, is being lined up by the Parisians as Tuchel’s successor but they say ‘PSG is warned’ that Arsenal have him on their list of people to replce Unai Emery.

So where has this list come from? The Athletic and David Ornstein who also exclusively named Mikel Arteta, Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira, Julen Lopetegui, Ralf Rangnick, and Jorge Sampaoli as the names on the list back in the summer Arsene Wenger left.

Are they the same names on any list now? Well, one would hope that Thierry Henry has fallen off for a start…

Where are they now?
