Arsenal Legend Paul Merson wants Arsenal to hire Conte if he’s sacked by Chelsea


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.
