A flood of money on the Betfair market this morning has seen Thomas Tuchel backed in from 33/1 to 4/1 to be the next Arsenal manager.

With Arsene Wenger facing familiar pressure from elements of the fanbase following his team’s disappointing recent run, speculation continues over whether his 21-year reign at the club could be coming to an end and if so, who would be his successor.

Katie Baylis, Spokesperson for Betfair, said: “While Juventus manager Max Allegri is slightly ahead in the betting at 7/2, Tuchel is clearly seen as a man worth backing and has impressed at Borussia Dortmund since replacing Jurgen Klopp.”

Meanwhile, Betfair has also seen big backing overnight for Wayne Rooney to head to China this year, with the Manchester United veteran into 1/4 from 5/2 to sign for any Chinese club before 1 September.
