SportBild think Arsenal are competition for BVB because the London club are also keen on Favre. They take claims from The Telegraph to say Sven Mislintat will be involved in the manager recruitment and therefore it seems taken as given that Favre will be a target.

Arsenal are also said to know of Favre’s release clause at Nice, which means he can leave the French club in the summer for €3-5m.

SportBild then somewhat dismiss the Arsenal competition because Dortmund are hugely confident they’re favourites and Favre wants to join. The manager prefers the BVB option and should be able to get Champions League football.

Talks have already taken place at some level.

Arsenal seem a supporting actor here, window dressing in what is essentially a story about Lucien Favre and Borussia Dortmund.
