Ex-Inter and Chelsea coach Antonio Conte is among the favourites to take over at Arsenal should Mikel Arteta be sacked.

Arteta’s position had already been somewhat tense after last season, but became even more troubled after losing the Premier League opener 2-0 away to newly-promoted Brentford.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is the favourite, according to The Sun, with Conte following on.

Conte won the Scudetto with Inter after a 10-year wait, but terminated his contract by mutual consent after concerns over their transfer strategy.

His fears proved to be founded, as Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku have since been sold to PSG and Chelsea respectively.

It would be a return to London for Conte, who won the Premier League at Chelsea.

He had also been in negotiations with Tottenham Hotspur over the summer, but wanted big spending at the club to match his ambitions.

As part of his contract termination with Inter, Conte cannot take charge of another Italian club this season.

4 thought on “Conte in the running for Arsenal job”
  1. I think IF Conte takes the Arsenal job (he won’t), by the end of the season, the Arsenal squad will either be dead or missing. Imaging going from the squad at Inter to Arsenal’s collection of misfits and back boneless lot. He will literally go crazy.
    And why would poor Brendan go to Arsenal? Beautiful beautiful human being and a great character…he has it so much better at Leicester.

  2. Milan, we already knew Elliot management was gonna raise the value of the club in order to sell on a high. They even said it once they took over, (3-5 year takeover plan). I think the biggest lesson from these two clubs is, new owners cannot come from the CCP. With their gvt in direct control of their money supply, investement, import/export, i fear every investment will lead to the same outcome. I think the best, most secure investors are from the US or if possible in Europe.

  3. I think sacking Arteta is will not be a solution
    unless the owner will accept to spend big money
    or we will stay winning no trophy.
