According to reports by German media outlet Kicker, Thomas Tuchel will be named as the new Arsenal manager this summer after putting his differences with former Borussia Dortmund chief scout and current Gunners head of recruitment Sven Mislintat to one side, and fans of the north London outfit have been quick to react.
Arsene Wenger is looking increasingly likely to leave his Emirates Stadium post at the end of the season after almost 22 years at the helm following another disappointing campaign, in which they look set to miss out on Champions League qualification again unless they win the Europa League.
Meanwhile, Tuchel has been out of a job since he was sacked by Dortmund last year, and according to SportBild’s chief football writer Christian Falk on Twitter, he has turned down the opportunity to take over at Bayern Munich this summer.
Arsenal supporters, who have urged the club to sign Julian Draxler this summer, have been quick to have their say on the rumour linking them with Tuchel via social media, and while one said “I’d rather have Allegri”, another said “Wenger is much, much better than Tuchel”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Do you think he's the best option out there??? For me he won't even be able to do better than AW. Need a better replacemet.

Categorically won’t happen. His fall out at Dortmund was around his lack of ownership over transfers and Sven Mislintat’s influence in picking targets. The very thing Sven has been bought into do at Arsenal is the thing Touchel won’t abide by
