Chelsea handed boost in the race for ideal Antonio Conte’ replacement

Arsenal and Chelsea have reportedly been put on alert after it was suggested that Leonardo Jardim could leave Monaco this summer.

The North Londoners are looking for a replacement for Arsene Wenger, while huge doubts stay over the future of Blues manager Antonio Conte, who has been tipped to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the campaign.

The manager has been linked with a move to either of the London clubs, and as reported by The Sun, both teams have taken note of his potential exit from Stade Louis II.

The story suggests that word has started to get around that Jardim has decided to end his four-year stay at the club after failing to defend the league title during the current season.

Jardim still has two seasons left on his deal. However neither Arsenal nor Chelsea would likely shy away from meeting a £6.6m release clause if they choose to firm up their interest.
