Arsenal ended last season outside the top four and have started the season out of the top four yet again, as the Gunners look a shadow of themselves.

Pundit and former Gunner Paul Merson, believes the club should have signed current Chelsea boss Antonio Conte before Chelsea snapped him up as Arsene Wenger has received calls for his head after a mixed start to the season.

“He [Wenger] runs the club, he runs everything,” Merson told Sky Sports show, The Debate.

“He could have sat there three years ago and said ‘these four managers coming up, they have left their football clubs, they’re world-class managers, go and get one’.

“They’re not even managers who have been sacked, they’ve just left their club.

“Conte, Klopp, even Mourinho, world-class managers.

“He should have said at the time, thinking of the club, go and get one of them.

“They won’t come up all the time.”
