It seems that Arsenal are one of the main characters in the ‘Where will Thomas Tuchel be managing next season’ saga. Recent reports from the German media really confused the situation surrounding the talented boss.

One German media organisation claimed that Tuchel had signed a deal with Arsenal, while another completely contradicted its competitor saying that Tuchel is more likely to move to Paris.

Bayern the preferred option for Tuchel

Now according to Sky Sports, the former Dortmund boss’ most likely destination this summer is German giants Bayern Munich. The move would be an understandable one for Tuchel.

The rumours linking Thomas Tuchel to Arsenal have been going on for a while now, but it seems as if they’re starting to gain even more traction. The German is widely expected to succeed Arsene Wenger once his two-decade-long tenure finally comes to an end, and it’s interesting from an outsider’s perspective to analyse whether this really is the best course of action.

There’s no doubting that it’s a name football purists will be excited about, given that he’s been making some noise over in Germany for the better part of 10 years. If you aren’t aware of what’s been going on in the Bundesliga, however, then there’s a very good chance that Thomas Tuchel is nothing more than a name to you.

Kicker claims they have inside information on the move, which if true could mean a big change at Arsenal.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger pretty much got used to feeling pressure at Arsenal, but the summer behind almost turned out to be lethal for the French tactician.

With Arsenal failing to secure Champions League football for the first time during his two-decade reign at the north London club, Frenchman was thought to be heading towards the exit door after 21 years in charge.

Following months of intense debate and questions regarding his future, Wenger ended up signing a two-year extension to his contract in May. The 67-year-old manager, however, reveals it was not an easy decision, adding he almost quit the club.

According to the BBC, Arsenal have decided to hand veteran boss Arsene Wenger a two-year extension to his contract that expires this summer.

The news will not come as a surprise for most Gunners fans, as Wenger is now part of the furniture at the north London club. The Frenchman has come in for heavy criticism over the past few seasons, despite winning the FA Cup in three of the last four seasons.

However, Gunners fans have become disillusioned with the club’s inability to win the Premier League title and some have called for change. Wenger and the club’s owner Stan Kroenke are reported to have made a verbal agreement on Monday after a meeting to determine the Frenchman’s future.

As I talked about yesterday in my article Wenger stated after the Baggies game that he would reveal his future ‘very soon’. The club have insisted that the decision will be a mutual one between the club and Wenger himself.

In a quote taken from the Daily Mirror Watzke said: “It is a fact that nobody from Arsenal called us. We’re talking about completely fictional stuff here,”

“Some day in May we will sit down and analyse this season. He is still under contract here for another year. That’s why I don’t understand all the speculation.”
