Arsene Wenger has been at the helm for 22 years and there can be a chance that if the Gunners go trophyless this season, the French manager may leave. In the past seasons FA Cup victories has been his saviour but they already have been knocked out of it thanks to a loss at Nottingham Forest.

The only silverware Arsenal can possibly get is the EFL Cup and Europa League.

At the other hand Antonio Conte has recently showed his unhappiness regarding club’s transfer policy and the way the club is run.

Conte will be perfect for Arsenal says Carragher

The Chelsea boss has grown frustrated with his life at the Stamford Bridge and there has been numerous reports that he can leave the Blues at any time, and Carragher believes that he will be perfect for the Gunners and they should do whatever they can to bring the Italian at the Emirates.

“Arsenal are in desperate need of Conte’s persona. It would be one of the most astute managerial appointments in Premier League history. I can imagine no more suitable replacement for Arsene Wenger than Conte,” Carragher wrote in his Telegraph column.

Wenger has been at Arsenal since 1996

He added that the Gunners are in dire need for a change and Conte will be the exact fuel that they require to reach the next level, somewhere higher from their recent ‘cycle of mediocrity’ as the former England defender was quoted.

Carragher further adde, “I will never lose respect for Wenger, his legacy in English football is preserved and he will always be considered one of the all-time greats – but I said last year his time was coming to an end and nothing has changed.”

He also made it clear that although Blues must try to keep him but if he leaves, Arsenal should try and bring him at the Emirates to make a short trip for the Italian as well between his current and former employers.

Gunners won their Premier League match against Palace on Saturday and Chelsea also won at Brighton, much to Conte’s ecstasy after a poor run of shows.
