Latest transfers:Mancini to Arsenal, Conte signs for Chelsea.

Antonio Conte fallout: Five-man transfer boom, earthquake predicted, Mancini to Arsenal.

ANTONIO CONTE'S appointment as Chelsea's new manager has sent Italian media into a frenzy.

Conte, 46, has penned a three-year deal with the Stamford Bridge club.

He will arrive in west London once he leaves his Italy head coach role ayer Euro 2016.

And the Italian press believe the appointment could greatly impact on the Serie A.

According to newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, Conte wants to bring five players with him to Chelsea.

The Blues are said to now have a real chance of landing long-term target Paul Pogba, who played under Conte when the latter was manager of Juventus.

Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci is also reportedly on the boss' list.

Gonzalo Higuain, who dominates Corriere dello Sport's front page after his outburst at being sent off for Napoli last weekend, is another target.

And Gazzetta claim Roma duo Antonio Rudiger, on loan from Stuttgart, and Radja Nainggolan will make up the transfer swoop.

Meanwhile, newspaper Tuttosport claim Conte's appointment will trigger an 'earthquake' in Italian football and Arsenal could feel the shock.

It is claimed Serie A is in 'turmoil' as managers leave the country for the Premier League.

AC Milan boss Sinisa Mihajlovic could lose his job by the end of next week if the San Siro giants fail to beat Juventus on Saturday, while Inter Milan's Roberto Mancini has been linked with the Arsenal job this summer.

Manicni reportedly doesn't want the Italy post, which is available heading into World Cup 2018 qualifying, and inserted has been touted as a replacement for Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.

One man returning to Italy could be Claudio Ranieri, however.

Ranieri is tipped to land the Italy national job after a dream season in charge of league leaders Leicester City, although he faces competition from Bologna's Roberto Donadoni.
