According to the German newspaper Bild, Arsenal have approached Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel to replace Arsene Wenger for next season. Wenger’s contract is set to run out at the end of current season and it is still unknown whether the Frenchman will be staying or not.
Since taking over in the summer of 2015, Tuchel has led Dortmund to a second place finish in Bundesliga and quarter final stage in Europa League. He has been hailed as one of the best managers out there due to a quick, attacking, and attractive style he has the club playing. They are currently one of the favorites to win the Champions League, as they eased past a decent Benfica side in the round of 16 and have a rather comfortable draw against Monaco for the quarters.

However, Bild’s report also suggests that the German prefers to stay exactly where he is and has no interest for a move to north London. That can lead Arsenal to move for Juventus’ Max Allegri instead, who is more experienced and has had more success than Tuchel.
If Arsenal really did make an offer for though, that can mean Wenger is finally set for an exit after 21 years in charge. Although he still has a two year contract extension on the table, the 67-year-old has yet to make a decision on his future. Many fans have been frustrated with the club’s recent results, with a banner saying “No contract: Wenger out” was flown over during a 3-1 loss to West Brom on Saturday.
