Arsenal are interested in appointing Nice manager Lucien Favre as Arsene Wenger’s successor, according to reports in Germany.
German newspaper Bild, as quoted by The Sun, is reporting that the Gunners have earmarked the 60-year-old as a potential replacement for Wenger after the Frenchman revealed that he is leaving Arsenal at the end of the season.
Wenger confirmed on Friday that he is set to bring an end to his 22-year spell at The Emirates at the end of the campaign.
There is now inevitably set to be plenty of speculation about who the north London club are set to bring in as their next manager for the new campaign.
And Nice boss Favre is reportedly one of the Gunners’ top targets.
The same report says that the Swiss manager would be available at the end of the season for the “small price” of £3.5m.
The story also claims that both Luis Enrique and Max Allegri are also “in the frame” to take over from Wenger at the end of the season at The Emirates.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are currently preparing for their crunch Europa League semi-final first leg clash against Atletico Madrid at The Emirates on Thursday night.
