Tuchel back in reckoning to replace Wenger?

Arsenal have reportedly identified Borussia Dortmund's Thomas Tuchel as the perfect candidate to replace manager Arsene Wenger at the helm next season.

The BvB head coach has earned plaudits for his attacking style of football in recent seasons which have helped the club progress despite the departure of Jurgen Klopp.

Tuchel had earlier in the year dismissed talks over a potential exit from the Bundesliga giants, but according to Bild, the Gunners' hierarchy have approached the German to takeover the hot seat from Wenger in the summer.

Wenger's 21-year reign in north London could come to an end at the expiry of his contract this summer, but there is still the prospect of him signing a new two-year contract on the table.

Tuchel's Dortmund have managed to qualify for the last eight of the Champions League this campaign where they face a resurgent AS Monaco, who trumped Manchester City by the away goal rule in the previous round.
