Former Arsenal Boss Arsene Wenger Now Favourite For Bayern Munich Job

Niko Kovac leaves Bayern Munich

Hero to zero: Battered Bayern bullet Kovac

"I think Allegri would be the right coach for Bayern", Toni told Sport1.

The report adds that Wenger, who won three Premier League titles with Arsenal would be offered a contract until the end of the season. There are some things you miss big, and some thing you don't miss. "We do not believe that what Ralf Rangnick brings is now being sought after by Bayern".

His candidacy is helped by the fact that he is a fluent German speaker and his history of playing the type of fluid, attacking football craved by Bayern Munich supporters.

While Wenger has enjoyed his year away from football, the satisfaction of winning matches and preparing players are "something you miss, of course", said the Frenchman.

Wenger is now 70 years old and it has been nearly 18 months since he left Arsenal after 22 years in charge of the Gunners.

Arsene Wenger has admitted that he will not rule out an approach from Bayern Munich, with rumours swirling of the Bavarian giants placing the former Arsenal boss as their number one target to replace departed boss Niko Kovač.

Therefore, with both Tuchel and Rangnick not now available for the role, this has left Wenger as the front runner for the job.

That came after Rangnick's agent Marc Kosicke's told Bild that his client was "not available" having taken on a new role as Head of Sport and Development at Red Bull. "And that's why it does not make sense to hold concrete talks". I got the feeling that he is now free from a huge pressure.

In addition to the Frankfurt loss, Bayern have suffered a defeat against Hoffenheim while also dropping points against Augsburg, RB Leipzig and Hertha Berlin in Bundesliga play. I can confirm I will stay at Ajax this season.

Kovac's assistant Hansi Flick will take charge of Bayern's heavyweight showdown with Boruissa Dortmund this weekend, however, before that mouthwatering meeting, Die Roten have the opportunity to reach the last-16 of the Champions League when they host Olympiakos.
