Arsenal agree deal in principle for new chief to replace Mikel Arteta
Arsenal have reportedly agreed tentative terms with Italian coach Antonio Conte as Mikel Arteta struggles to get Arsenal’s season up and running.
Arsenal occupies last place in the Premier League after three defeats out of the three matches. They haven’t scored a goal yet, and questions about Arteta’s credentials have already begun.
The Spaniard only managed to finish eighth last season, after winning the FA Cup in his first season.
currently, to me all transfers, Arsenal are already making moves behind the scenes to replace the 39-year-old.
First, although the Spanish source is far from being a reputable outlet, so the last hadith is believable.
But they mentioned that the former Chelsea president “Antonio Conte” He was contacted a little over a week ago “after Arsenal’s two defeats in the Premier League.
The outlet says the experienced coach has “already closed a preliminary agreement” with Arsenal.
Essentially, Conte appears to have agreed in principle to take command of north London as long as he can do so before October.
That would leave Arteta needing a significant improvement in results in his next three matches.
Arsenal will meet with Norwich, Burnley and Tottenham, in the first and last of those matches at home. A shift in results is also not out of the question given the challenging nature of their opening matches against Brentford, Man City and Chelsea.
Conte is available after leaving Serie A winners Inter Milan in the summer.
Conte takes over the TV role
Conte left the San Siro after a row with Inter due to the financial restrictions imposed by the owners.
He has since taken a job as an analyst at an Italian television channel.
Conte will become a special guest in the studio for Sky Sport Italia Covering the Champions League and international football.
But that could be short-lived if Stan Kroenke is the owner of Arsenal and Edu despite pulling the plug on Arteta.
With the deadline allegedly imposed by Conte, he could be in charge at Emirates against Brighton on October 2.
It was understood Conte was a candidate to take over at Everton before Rafa Benitez took over in June.
The 52-year-old was in charge of Chelsea between 2016/18 and won the Premier League and FA Cup.
