​Souness doubts Ancelotti would want to join Arsenal

Former Liverpool manager Graeme Souness does not believe Carlo Ancelotti would join Arsenal.

The Italian is now without a job after being sacked by Napoli, despite guiding them into the last 16 of the competition.

When asked if Ancelotti would be a good fit for Arsenal, Liverpool hero Souness doubted whether the Italian would be interested.

"Would the big [managers] take Arsenal at the moment? I'm not so sure," Souness told Virgin Sport Media.

"I don't think the next man at Arsenal is going to be the one to turn the corner for them. I think there's a lot of work to be done there, especially with those players.

"I think [Ancelotti] is a big manager and if you look at the jobs he's had - Real Madrid, PSG, Chelsea - you know Arsenal are a fabulous club, but right now it's a difficult job, whoever gets it."
