Gunners may face stiff competition for German’s signature though.
Arsenal are believed to be lining up Germany national team coach Joachim Low as a potential long-term replacement for current manager Arsene Wenger, says the Metro.
Wenger is presently operating on a one-year rolling contract at the Emirates and will make a definitive decision about his Gunners future at the end of next season.
The Frenchman could either carry on in north London, depending on how the team fare in the next campaign most probably, try out a new challenge in his career, with the likes of big-spending Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain known to be keen to lure Wenger to the Parc des Princes, or simply call it a day entirely.
Either way, the club are now preparing the ground for his eventual departure and are said to be keen to bring in a replacement who shares the same type of footballing philosophy as Wenger’s.
And that man is understood to be Low, whose contract with Germany expires at the end of next summer’s World Cup finals, although the club may have to compete with the likes of both Chelsea and Real Madrid for the highly-rated German trainer.
