Metro UK now reports Conte is open to a return to the English topflight but is only keen on joining a club with a winning project.

The 52-year-old is arguably the most experienced and proven manager currently without a club and has been identified as the most ideal candidate to take over at either Man United or Arsenal where both Mikel Arteta and Solskjaer have come under immense pressure.

However, Sky Sport Italia's Gianluca DiMarzio claims Conte would only join a club where he can win titles immediately.

The tactician reportedly views the Gunners as a more long-term project and lack players who can guarantee silverware immediately.

United, meanwhile, are a different proposition and are one of the EPL sides he would consider managing if an offer is tabled.
