Arsenal and Antonio Conte have reached a preliminary deal
It has been reported that Arsenal have reached a ‘preliminary agreement’ with former Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte, who will take over from Mikel Arteta at the end of the season.
With zero points and zero goals from matches against Brentford, Chelsea, and Manchester City, the Gunners have had a disastrous start to the 2021-22 Premier League season so far.
Arteta did, however, lead Arsenal to an FA Cup victory in his first half-season in charge, and the Gunners’ board of directors is believed to have faith in the Spaniard to turn the club’s fortunes around.
Arteta, according to Todofichajes, must make a “radical” change in the next few weeks in order to keep his job because Arsenal director Edu has made a “preliminary agreement” with Conte in order to take over the reins from October.
According to the report, Conte has agreed to become Arsenal’s next head coach as long as he does not take over the club’s reins later than October. Conte was first approached by the Gunners following their defeat to Chelsea, according to the article.
Conte has been out of the game since leaving Inter Milan during their successful 2020-21 Serie A season, but he previously won 70 of his 106 games in command of Chelsea between 2016 and 2018. Conte previously won 70 of his 106 games in charge of Chelsea between 2016 and 2018.
