Arsenal have denied claims that they have approached Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel.

Reports emerged on Sunday evening that the Gunners had held talks with Tuchel over the possibility of replacing beleaguered manager Arsene Wenger.

German newspaper Bild claimed that the Dortmund boss ‘has received a request from Arsenal’, with Wenger’s future under increasing scrutiny.

The veracity of the story has been disputed however, and Arsenal have moved to deny it.

Wenger’s contract as manager expires in the summer, and he is believed to have been offered a new, two-year deal to remain in charge.

The Frenchman has promised to announce a decision over his future soon. It was reported on Monday that he is keen to stay on.
