The Gunners are poised to miss out on a top-four Premier League finish once again and speculation suggests that the north London side are considering potential replacements for their long-serving French manager.
One of those widely linked with a move to Arsenal is former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel, who could reunite with club-record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and a Premier League star has backed the German to excel in English football.
“I’m a big fan of his. I believe he’s a world class coach and that he can coach every big club in the world, for me that’s not in doubt. I’m glad (he could go to England), I really enjoyed my one year playing for him (at Dortmund) and I learnt a lot in that time.”
“I wish him all the best and have spoken to him a little since (leaving Dortmund). I’m sure in the not too distant future he’ll be managing a big club.”
Reports over the weekend widely linked Tuchel with a position at the Emirates Stadium, although there have since been suggestions that he will not be moving to the Emirates Stadium.
