It comes amidst fresh speculation on Wenger’s future following a 3-1 loss at West Brom which had the Frenchman on the defensive.

Tuchel took over for Jurgen Klopp in 2015 after five seasons at Mainz. He led Mainz as high as 7th and Borussia Dortmund finished runners-up to Bayern Munich last season.
