Somebody who, here at Vital Chelsea, we hold with great affection, is, apparently, heading back to London to take up a managerial role with a Premier League club.

But, before you all start thinking that club could be Chelsea, we`ll halt you in your tracks right now by saying it isn`t.

As for the person we`re talking about, look no further than Carlo Ancelotti who is being tipped by the Italian news source, Corriere dello Sport, as being the next manager of Arsenal Football Club.

In fact, our referenced source is going as far as to suggest that Ancelotti will take over the Arsenal managerial hot-seat at the end of the season, replacing Arsene Wenger.

Continuing, our source suggests the Italian, who led Chelsea to a unique League and Cup double whilst he was with us, has agreed a four-year deal said to be worth a cool £35.5 million.

Now whether our aforementioned source has its facts correct or not remains to be seen, but we`ll endeavour to keep an eye out for any further pieces of speculation that might be doing the rounds over the coming days.
