Milan have not won a game since December 2 and are a whopping 21 points off leaders Juventus – who also have a game in hand.

Following their early elimination from the Europa League, Gattuso’s position in charge is under serious threat.

According to Calcio Mercato, failure to beat 16th-placed SPAL at home on Saturday will see the World Cup winning midfielder lose his job.

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is on the shortlist to replace the former Italy midfielder, as is ex-England boss Fabio Capello.

Roberto Donadoni, Paulo Sousa and former Swansea City boss Francesco Guidolin are also reportedly being considered as Gattuso’s replacement, should he get the sack.

However, it is Wenger who is reportedly leading the way after leaving the Gunners in the summer.

Emmanuel Petit claimed he felt his former boss would take over at Bayern Munich in 2019, although a move to Paris Saint-Germain in a directorial role has also been mooted.
