Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly the favourite ahead of Jose Mourinho to become the next head coach at AC Milan.

The Rossoneri are currently considering the future of Gennaro Gattuso with the club going through a four-match winless run across all competitions.

According to Tuttomercato, Gattuso is under immense pressure heading into the final two games of the year and anything less than a win in both could see him axed.

It is added that both Mourinho and Wenger have emerged as possible targets to replace Gattuso, although the latter is said to be the prime candidate to take over the reigns.

Milan are currently one point adrift of fourth-placed Lazio and they are scheduled to face Frosinone and SPAL before heading into the winter break.

The Rossoneri go into the midweek game with a three-match winless streak in the Serie A while they have failed to score in any of those matches.
