Arsene Wenger wants the Bayern Munich job amid doubts over Niko Kovac’s future as manager.

The Frenchman has not retired but is not interested in taking over at another club in England after ending his 22 years in charge at Arsenal with his departure in the summer.

Wenger has said that he wants to be back in management by the beginning of 2019 and the Telegraph are reporting that he is keen to take over at Bayern.

There are suggestions in Germany that Wenger is seen as a possible successor to Kovac, who has had a bad start to life at the Allianz Arena.

The German champions are fifth in the Bundesliga table after 12 games.

Kovac’s standing took another blow this weekend when Bayern crashed from a 3-1 lead against Fortuna Dusseldorf to draw 3-3.

Bayern would undoubtedly give the 69-year-old the chance of picking up more trophies.

He would also be quick to settle — German is one of the languages he speaks fluently.

Wenger has also been eyed by Paris Saint-Germain as a potential technical director.
