Arsenal boosted with decorated football manager eyeing PL move

Thomas Tuchel is claimed to be eyeing a move to the Premier League after he was removed as boss of Paris Saint-Germain this week.

The manager was sacked shortly after his side trounced Strasbourg 4-0 yesterday, with his side sitting just one point below Lyon and Lille who sit joint-top of the table, and with him having secured their place in the knockout round of the Champions League with a devastatingly dominant victory over Manchester United at the start of the month.

It is unclear as to the reasons why the manager was moved on, although early reports suggest that the club had lined up Mauricio Pochettino as his replacement.

Reports in Germany now claim that Tuchel is eyeing his next role in the Premier League, with Christian Falk mentioning both Manchester United and Arsenal as options.

Falk is known as an ‘In the know’ in certain circles, and works for German publication Bild, but he doesn’t reveal his sources for such speculation.

The Gunners manager’s position is far from tenable at present, having picked up just one win from their last 10 Premier League matches, and having fallen down to as low as 15th in the table.

The club wasn’t in much better shape at this point in the previous campaign either, but Mikel Arteta’s arrival after Christmas saw a huge revival in form, and they eventually secured Europa League participation via winning the FA Cup, to save their season.

The current talk is of a relegation battle however, as they sit just four points off the drop zone, and nobody would be shocked if the manager was given his marching orders.

Would Tuchel pose as the type of manager Arsenal should be targeting?

  1. No, would prefer Brandon Rodgers, with unknown players on a medium budget, the man is doing well. Managed the pool team in his first big job, did well with Swansea too. This is if the unfortunate decision is made against MA.However he should have the final say in the players he wants, damn Edu and the lot

  2. Absolutely NO the man has no tactics he is useless he relies on great players like Mbape and Neyma ,without them he struggles to win games.

  3. I dont think he is all that he seems. Sacked for winning the league, getting into the CL knock out and beating utd 4-0. Bit of a different ambition at PSG than AFC. We obviously have lost our ambition.

  4. He would be a significant upgrade in the short-term, as we could use an attack-minded manager who isn’t afraid to coach players hard…this is why he ultimately failed at PSG, just like Unai, as they have too many coddled superstars who view the club as just a stop-gap and/or stepping stone…I liked him in Dortmund but felt it was a difficult appointment for anyone due to the fact that his predecessors was Klopp…who by the way should have been our manager if our club could have gotten rid of Wenger in a much more timely fashion…the belief that Arteta can create some sort of ManCity South in North London is a bit far-fetched, as it requires a substantial financial commitment that simply is untenable with Kroenke at the helm…the Ajax and/or Dortmund models should provide us with the proper blueprint moving forward, at least for the foreseeable future, until we can develop some sellable assets of our own

  5. Arteta I can forgive as he’s a rookie who should have people above him to help him and advise him. It’s Edu and the other no nothing Venk who need replacing. I’d also add the Kroenkes but that will never happen, as even if we are relegated he saves £37.5 million in wages a year and the wages of players who’s contracts expire.

  6. Would prefer Brendan Rogers or Mauricio Pochetino, experienced, understands the premier league well and can make use of available players better especially at this financial trying moments.
