Italian reporters can’t see Antonio Conte being tempted by the Arsenal job.
The former Inter Milan coach is being linked with the Gunners as a replacement for Mikel Arteta.
But with no European football and a struggling team, local media doubt Conte would be interested.
“He’s smarter than to accept a team with that many problems at this moment,” said Fabrizio Biasin told Calciomercato.it.
“At most he could potentially consider it next season, but I doubt it.”
Massimiliano Maddaloni also said: “Conte is telling everyone he wants a year out so he can then start again with an important project next year and Arsenal really do not fit the bill.
