San Siro club want Emirates boss to rescue poor start.
Inter Milan have made informal enquiries with the Arsenal board into the availabilty of manager Arsene Wenger.
The Serie A club hope to take advantage of the Gunners dire start to the new campaign and entice the Frenchman to Italy.
The Nerazzurri are enduring their own poor start to the season having earned one point from two league games and suffered an embarrassing home defeat to Trabzonspor in the Champions League.
The pressure is on new boss Gian Piero Gasperini to start delivering results or president Massimo Moratti will look to replace him.
“Am I hanging by a thread?,” Gasperini said. “Only Moratti can say and he has always been fair towards me.
“I concern myself with my work, my professionalism and what the president and the club have to say. Not with what others have to say.”
Sources in Italy suggest Moratti will give his man more time to turn events around but has instructed his aides to hunt out a new manager of the highest calibre who could be available in January, if Gasperini fails to reverse the team’s form.
Also on the radar is Dutch managers Guus Hiddink and Frank Rijkaard, while Carlo Ancelotti has also been linked with a return to the San Siro, following his time at AC Milan.
Wenger is still very much loved at the Emirates but the club’s poor start to the season has seen calls from the stands that maybe it is time for a change.
It is highly unlikely he will walk away but if the poor results continue and the fans’ anger grows then the board could make a huge call and sack him.
