CARLO ANCELOTTI will be at the centre of a summer tug of war between London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal. Ancelotti, who has been out of the game since leaving Bayern Munich in September, is now back living in London. He has made it clear that he wants a return to the Premier League and isn’t going to be short of job offers with both Antonio Conte and Arsene Wenger set to move on. The 58-year-old was spotted at Stamford Bridge recently where he was a guest of Blues owner Roman Abramovich which suggests he is in the running to replace Antonio Conte. Conte is set to return to Italy at the end of the season with former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique also in the running to move to west London before the World Cup. Arsenal are working on a shortlist of candidates to replace Arsene Wenger who is also likely to leave halfway through the two-year deal he signed last summer.
