The Football expert Paul Merson thinks Arsenal should replace the Italian manager with Arsene Wenger if the Blues sack him.
On his first season with Chelsea, Antonio Conte won the EPL silverware with them, but right now his situation at Chelsea is uncertain because of back to back defeats in the EPL.
In his last match, Chelsea has conceded 4 goals against Watford, and now the pressure is mounting on him, and Chelsea is conceding to replace him with former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique.
The Football Pundit Merson thinks now if Chelsea sack Conte, then Arsenal should go after him, although a few months ago Arsene Wenger signed a new two years deal with the Gunners.
In an Interview, Paul Merson voiced: "The day Conte leaves Chelsea, if I was Arsenal, I'd be straight on the phone,"
"Arsenal need someone that is going to go in there and upset people. Conte upsets people. He wants you to play a certain way and he'll make you rock solid at the back. As soon as Arsenal get rock solid at the back, they'll be a force.
"I think Arsenal would say: 'we'd have you next season'. I think they'd be mad if they didn't.
"I think it ticks all the boxes. Arsenal can't keep missing all these managers. You can't tell me Pep Guardiola wouldn't want to have managed Arsenal? If he had that opportunity, he'd have gone to Arsenal in my opinion.
"Jurgen Klopp, Jose Mourinho, they all went to Arsenal's rivals because Wenger was sat there in the manager's seat instead of saying the time was right to leave.
"There are other top managers like Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus, but he might come in and it would take him a year to get used to the Premier League – like it did with Klopp."
