Arsenal deny reports of Thomas Tuchel approach

Will Dortmund boss replace Arsene Wenger?

Arsenal have denied reports that they have approached Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel to replace Arsene Wenger.

A spokesman for the club told Sky Sports that the report, which appeared in the German media and Bild newspaper, was simply “not true”.

Arsenal have reiterated that a decision on Wenger’s future will be a “mutual decision, which will be communicated at the right time in the right way”. They now sit 6th in the Premier League after a poor performance in their 3-1 loss away at West Brom on Saturday.

After the match, Wenger revealed that he has made a decision concerning his future, and that everyone will know what he has decided ‘very soon’.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis has claimed that Wenger told him after the game – which saw some Arsenal fans display banners calling for him to go – that he has decided he wants to stay at the club.
