Arsene Wenger is reportedly ready to hold talks over becoming the next England manager despite a two-year contract offer on the table from Arsenal.
The Gunners boss has been unwavering in his loyalty to the club over the years, supposedly rejecting an approach from the Three Lions in the past, as well as top clubs like Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.
Still, Wenger has a year to go on his Arsenal deal and seems to be considering his future, with The Times claiming he could be keen on the challenge of managing England.
The Frenchman remains one of the world’s leading tacticians despite a difficult few years at Arsenal, and is considerably more experienced and proven than many of the other candidates rumoured to be in consideration at the moment.
Wenger, however, would not be able to commit to taking the job until the end of next season, and the Football Association are unsure whether to pin all their hopes on the 66-year-old in case he ends up deciding against the move next year.
Gareth Southgate had been talked up as an interim option for England, but is leaning against taking that offer, while Laurent Blanc has also been mentioned as a leading contender after his recent sacking from PSG.
