The six-time Serie A winner has long been linked with a move to England, most notably Manchester United and Arsenal in recent years, having been without a club since leaving Juventus in 2019.
Allegri has now revealed he is improving his English language skills and looking for a fresh challenge in a league “more sophisticated and more tactical” than before.
“I would like to experience the Premier League,” Allegri said. “In Italy, I was in Milan four years. Five years in Juventus. Now I expect (to work again) in Italy, but it is difficult, or in England.”
“English football is improving now because there are a lot of foreign trainers.
“England now is more sophisticated, and more tactical, but is also respecting the tradition of English football. It’s a good balance of the spirit of English football and the new quality and new tactical approach of the new coaches.”
Allegri said Liverpool and Bayern Munich are the two best teams in Europe right now, and he is a huge admirer of coach Jurgen Klopp’s work at Anfield.
“Klopp is doing such great work because Liverpool has the right balance,” Allegri said. “Every year they improve the team. Liverpool have players who are very fast, technical, are physically stronger, and they have character.”
