Arsenal have agreed terms in principle with Antonio Conte, as Mikel Arteta continues to struggle this season, according to Todo Fichajes.
The Gunners are bottom of the Premier League after three fixtures, having not won a game or scored a single goal.
While sporting director Edu and the rest of the Arsenal hierarchy have showed faith in Arteta, it is believed he is walking a tightrope.
And Arsenal are already putting together plans to replace Arteta, should they decide to terminate his contract in the coming weeks.
Conte would surely be the number one preference, as he is available since leaving Inter Milan.
The Italian has already turned down Arsenal rivals Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
