  • Chelsea icon Frank Lampard believes Antonio Conte should be given more time as boss

Conte himself has made it clear in the past that he would like to return to Italy to manage one day but he may well be offered the chance to do that via Paris.

Conte's future at the Bridge has constantly been in the headlines since he memorably led Chelsea to the title with a record 30 wins from 38 games.

The French paper claim that the Ligue 1 have sounded out the Italian about the possibility of taking over in the summer.

In the end Chelsea carved out a deserved 1-0 victory which propelled the 4th-placed club to within one point of both the Red Devils and London rivals Tottenham. However even rectifying that might not save him this summer after PSG started talks with a Premier League boss over the job. Recently, reports state the French giants are hot on the tails of Manchester United's Jose Mourinho, but now you can add Antonio Conte to the discussion.

Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to hand Unai Emery a year's extension to his contract if he leads the club into at least the semi-finals of the Champions League, but are also already thinking of his potential successor, with Antonio Conte a candidate. Add that to Monaco being stripped of their top talent it means there is more pressure on the former Sevilla boss to succeed.

Marko Arnautovic could be sold by new West Ham manager David Moyes in January, just fourth months after joining the club, the Mirror reports.

'Why Paris? Because there's something special.

And it is reported he will get the boot if he fails to guide his expensively assembled squad to the semi-finals of this season's Champions League.

However, Le Parisien report that PSG have earmarked Conte as their main target and Mourinho will face stiff competition if he is take the reins at Parc des Princes.
