Piers Morgan has claimed that Arsenal should axe under-fire manager Mikel Arteta and replace him with former Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte.

Arteta has been handed additional funds by the Premier League club this summer in a bid to bolster his squad.

Conte ended Juventus’ dominance over Italian football last season by leading Inter to the Serie A title.

However, the 52-year-old Italian manager left Inter in May after a reported disagreement over the club’s summer transfer policy.

Conte, who lifted a Premier League title and FA Cup with Chelsea, was heavily linked with Tottenham before talks collapsed.

“Money is not my obsession,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport in June.

“I look at projects and I'm ready to stay at home if they don't convince me.

“I like difficult challenges but if there is something with a club that does not convince me, I prefer to say: no, thank you.”

Arsenal will return to action on Wednesday for their Carabao Cup clash with West Brom at The Hawthorns.
