Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, is set to be offered the Bayern Munich manager’s job until the end of the season, The Sun UK reports.
According to the paper, Wenger, 70, is understood to have now been contacted by Bayern who sacked Niko Kovac after a humiliating 5-1 defeat to Frankfurt on Saturday.
It added that the contract may be renewed next summer depending on the season’s outcome for Bayern.
The report says Wenger is likely to stage full discussions with club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge after this weekend’s massive clash with Dortmund so an appointment could be made during the international break.
The Frenchman speaks fluent German and that is believed to be giving him an edge since there would be no language barrier at the Allianz Arena.
Wenger currently has a technical role offered him by FIFA.
