EPL: Why Conte should replace Wenger at Arsenal


Arsenal have been told to replace manager, Arsene Wenger with Antonio Conte, should the Italian leave Chelsea.

Wenger signed a two-year contract last summer but many predict this could be his final season in charge at the Emirates.

For Conte, the Italian is on the verge of being sacked after a difficult start to 2018 and fractures in his relationship with his employers.

Former Arsenal player, Paul Merson said the Gunners should take advantage of the situation, believing Conte could greatly improve the Gunners’ defence.

He told Sky Sports, “The day he [Conte] leaves Chelsea, if I was Arsenal, I’d be straight on the phone.

“Arsenal need someone like him. He upsets people but he wants you to play a certain way and he will make you rock solid at the back.

“As soon as Arsenal get rock solid at the back they will be a force.

“He’s a top manager.

“I think Arsenal would say ‘we will have you next season.’ I think they would be mad if they didn’t. Sooner or later it’s got to change, Arsene can’t [stay forever].

“These managers don’t come along too often in football. I think he ticks all the boxed I really do. Arsenal can’t keep on missing all these managers.”

Conte is widely expected to leave Chelsea this summer, if not earlier.
