Arsenal boss Wenger remains in FA thoughts for England job

The English Football Association are planning to replace Sam Allardyce with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger as the manager of the England national team, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.

Allardyce was relieved of his duties as manager of the England national team just 67 days into the job after he was caught up in a sting operation orchestrated by the Daily Telegraph in relation to corruption in English football.

U21 boss Gareth Southgate will now be in charge of the England team on an interim basis for the next four matches but the FA are seeking a permanent replacement for Allardyce and now according to reports from the Standard, it has been claimed that Wenger is among the leading candidates to take over the managerial reins for the Three Lions.

The Frenchman is out of contract with the Gunners at the end of the season and could be seen as a long-term option for the FA.

The report suggests that Wenger, as well as AFC Bournemouth's Eddie Howe, remain in the thoughts of the FA having been linked with the role during the summer.
