Arsene Wenger has been under pressure of late following Arsenal's exit from the Champions League and the FA Cup.
The Frenchman, who is now the longest serving manager in Europe, is also in danger of missing out on the Premier League title having fallen 11 points behind league leaders Leicester City with less than ten games to go.
While there have been a group of Arsenal fans calling for his exit, claims being made in the Italian media might make them think again.
Newspaper Corierre dello Sport are reporting that Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini is being lined up as his replacement. The Italian of course led Manchester City to the most dramatic Premier League title in 2012, but isn't enjoying the best of times at the San Siro.
Inter Milan are in fifth place, five points off Champions League qualification and a whopping 25 points off league leaders Juventus. Mancini recently admitted he 'missed' English football having been sacked by City in 2013, and could be seeking a way back to the Premier League.
While the Italian media are suggesting Mancini as a replacement for Wenger, in England the Sun are claiming that the Arsenal boss has been told to splash the cash in the summer transfer window in order to turn the Gunners into a major force in Europe.
Their defeat against Barcelona at the last-16 of the Champions League this year marked the sixth-straight season they'd been knocked out at the first hurdle.
The paper claim that Wenger is being told by Arsenal's board to change his ways and start spending big in the transfer market, or risk not being handed a new contract.
The club are said to have cash reserves of £159 million and have recently been linked with the likes of Toni Kroos, Gonzalo Higuain, Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and John Stones.
Arsenal will take on Watford after the resumption of the Premier League following the international break.
