After a very eventful game at the Hawthorns, the Gunners once again succumbed to defeat at the hands of West Brom. This means that #Arsenal have won only two of their last five matches with both victories coming against two non-league sides, namely Lincoln City and Sutton United, in the FA Cup. Arguably, the Gunners are currently going through their worst period under Arsene Wenger. The long-serving manager is now under immense pressure, and a portion of disgruntled Arsenal supporters even went as far as crowdfunding a plane, which flew over the stadium during Arsenal's match against the Baggies.
This plane towed a banner that read "No Contract ##Wenger Out". Now, reports in Germany suggest that Arsenal have made an offer to BVB manager #Thomas Tuchel to potentially replace the Frenchman at the end of the season.
Arsenal want Thomas Tuchel to replace Arsene Wenger
Wenger's current contract expires at the end of the season, but Arsenal have reportedly already offered him a new two-year deal. When asked about his future during Saturday's post-match press conference, Wenger claimed that he has already made up his mind. "I know what I will do. You will soon know," said the Arsenal boss.
According to German newspaper Bild, Arsenal have surprisingly approached Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel and want the German to take over at Arsenal in the summer.
Tuchel, who has been at Borussia Dortmund for nearly two seasons, has been linked with Arsenal for several months now. At 43 years old, the German manager is relatively young, and even though he is yet to win any major trophies in his career, Tuchel could be a good fit at the North London club. Under Tuchel, Dortmund has been widely praised for their attacking style of play, something Arsenal are also known for. Perhaps the BVB manager could be the man to instill new life into the Arsenal squad.
Will Wenger quit Gunners at the end of the season?
The Arsenal Board has previously stated that a final decision on Arsene Wenger's future at the club would be mutual. Various sources claim that Wenger has no intention of leaving this summer, as he believes that he can still help the club grow in a positive direction. The Frenchman has stated on several occasions that his preference was always to stay at Arsenal, but he also admitted that the mood of the fans would influence his decision. Regardless of what happens at the end of the season, Wenger will surely be remembered as an Arsenal legend for his contribution to the club, when he inevitably quits the Gunners.
