Former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has agreed a deal to become Arsenal manager, according to reports in Germany.
Tuchel has been out of a job since being fired by Dortmund last May and Bayern Munich were interested in bringing in the 44-year-old as Jupp Heynckes’ successor.
However, it’s understood Tuchel informed Bayern that he plans on managing in a different country and it appears he is set for a move to the Premier League.
Kicker suggests the German has already signed a contract with Arsenal to replace Arsene Wenger, with the Frenchman preparing to leave at the end of the 2017/18 campaign.
It’s claimed Tuchel will follow Sven Mislintat to north London despite the pair falling out during their time at the Westfalenstadion. Mislintat, who joined the Gunners as head of recruitment last year, was banned from Dortmund’s training ground by Tuchel.
Wenger played down speculation that he is set to leave Arsenal following the side’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.
‘I am just amazed that I have to always answer things that are exactly the same,’ he said.
‘I am here for 21 years, I turned the whole world down to respect my contracts. So I am still amazed that I still have to answer these types of questions.
‘My position is my position. Honestly, that’s the last worry I have at the moment. My worry is to focus, to get the team ready for tomorrow’s game.
‘My job is to focus on performing and my job is to perform. It’s for other people to judge me, it isn’t for me to evaluate that.’
