It’s believed the Gunners will make a move for unattached coach Antonio Conte if results don’t improve in the coming weeks.
According to the Telegraph, Arteta needs to pick up some positive results from the team’s next five games or he’ll ‘face a fight’ to keep his job.
Arsenal lost their opening two Premier League fixtures to newly promoted Brentford and European champions Chelsea.
And IF the Gunners decide to part company with Arteta, they will reportedly turn to Prem winner Conte to drag them up the table.
Conte is currently without a club following successful spells with Juventus, Italy, Chelsea and Inter Milan – winning Serie A last term.
Arteta’s side are expected to beat the Baggies after their 4-0 Premier League victory at the Hawthorns last season.
The third match of this run – a home clash with relegation favourites Norwich – is perhaps their best chance of securing a league win.
If reports are to be believed, Arteta’s team may need to beat the club’s biggest rivals to keep their manager in a job.
Club legend and former England international Sol Campbell has urged Arteta to give him a job after promising to fix their defensive woes.
