Arsenal have reportedly found their Arsene Wenger successor and it comes in the form of Thomas Tuchel.
Arsene Wenger’s job has been on the line for a number of years now but this season has been even more lacklustre than past years.
Having failed to mount any form of a title, the Gunners also look unlikely to finish in the Premier League top four this season, with winning the Europa League their last chance to qualify for the Champions League.

With that in mind, pressure has been mounting on Wenger and it looks as though the club have finally decided that it could do with a fresh face to take Arsenal back into the big time and Kicker in Germany have now named that man as former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel.
What if Tuchel is a smoke screen for Enrique, Which in turn is a smoke screen for Allegri, who is a smoke screen for Ancelotti, who's a smoke screen for Rodgers, Who is actually being used as a very clever smoke screen to announce a new Wenger 2-year contract extension.— Mike Sanz (@mikesanz19) March 25, 2018
The German was heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich but reports on Saturday night suggested that he had rejected the chance to take over at the Allianz.
Then, on Sunday, reports emerged from Kicker and Bild that Tuchel was set to take over from Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.
Whether reports prove to be true or not, it’s safe to say that Wenger is on borrowed time at the Emirates and a new manager will likely be at the helm this summer.
Sky Bet currently have Tuchel as the 6/4 favourite while Carlo Ancelotti sits at 4/1 and Joachim Loew at 5/1.
