Arsene Wenger is seriously considering taking over as Bayern Munich manager as doubts over Niko Kovac’s future appears to have grown stronger in recent weeks
The Frenchman claims he has not retired but is not interested in taking over at another club in England after ending his 22-year association with Arsenal last summer.
Wenger has said that he wants to be back in management by the beginning of 2019 and there are strong reports that he is keen to take over at Bayern.
There are even serious suggestions in Germany that Wenger is seen as the ideal successor to Kovac, who has had an uninspiring start to life at the Allianz Arena.
The German champions are fifth in the Bundesliga table after 12 games.
Kovac’s position took another heavy blow this weekend when Bayern surrendered a 3-1 lead against Fortuna Dusseldorf to draw 3-3.
Wenger is thought to be only interested in a job where he has a realistic chance of ending his career with silverware while competing at the top level and believes Bayern would be the perfect place to achieve that.
Bayern undoubtedly offers the 69-year-old Frenchman the chance of picking up more trophies.
The language wouldn’t also be a barrier for Wenger as German is one of the languages he speaks fluently.
Paris Saint-Germain is also thought to be considering Arsene Wenger as a potential technical director but it seems Bayern are the favorites to get the former Arsenal boss.
