Carragher: Arsenal should replace Wenger with Conte

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Arsenal should move for Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

With Arsenal sitting in sixth position in the Premier League and eight points behind Chelsea in the last Champions League spot, Wenger is tipped to leave Arsenal in May after 22 years at the helm.

"I can imagine no more suitable replacement for Arsene Wenger than Conte," Carragher wrote in his Telegraph column.

"Arsenal are in desperate need of Conte's persona. It would be one of the most astute managerial appointments in Premier League history.

"Can you imagine Conte, disillusioned with his treatment at Chelsea, turning up at the Emirates?

"Chelsea should be desperately trying to keep Conte, not only because he will bring more success to the club, but to ensure he does not come back to haunt them when he returns with a rival.

"If the Chelsea board cannot see that, Arsenal should be doing everything in their power to ensure it is a short Tube ride to his next destination."
