Antonio Conte is reportedly not interested in succeeding Mikel Arteta as Arsenal manager and will wait until the end of the season to find a new job.
Conte, who left Inter Milan in Italy earlier this year, is currently unemployed. He has been linked to a variety of high-ranking positions since then.
He was involved in discussions with Tottenham before Nuno Espirito Sato was appointed. Recently, he was named in connection to their north London rivals.
After a disappointing start to the season, pressure has been building on Arteta. Discussions began about who might replace him. But Conte won’t be there.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has claimed the 52-year-old does not want to take over a club midway through the season, so instead will seek his next role for the 2022/23 campaign.
This means that he is not only out of the picture at Arsenal but also Barcelona. Ronald Koeman could be in need of a new manager soon.
Arteta could remain in charge for the moment, but Conte could be the Gunners’ boss next year.
Which person do you think should take charge of Arsenal? Comment below.
Conte previously managed in the Premier League during his two-year spell with Chelsea from 2016-2018.
The Blues won their first title as he was in charge. This record, which was set at the time by Liverpool and Manchester City, was broken in the following seasons.
He won the FA Cup again, but he was sacked for fifth-placed in the league.

After that departure, he was out of the game for one year. Therefore, waiting for a new campaign is not something he likes to do.
In 2019, he returned to Inter as Inter’s manager and made the club the same powerhouse it was before his departure.
His first campaign in Milan saw him reach the Europa League final. He also won the Scudetto Serie A last season.
He was not fired because of disagreements with club hierarchy regarding transfers. They allowed Achraf Hakimi, Romelu Lukaku, and Romelu Tolku to leave for Paris Saint-Germain or Chelsea.
