Hoffenheim coach Nagelsmann set for Arsenal interview

Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann is being actively discussed at Arsenal as a replacement for Arsene Wenger.

The Daily Mail says Mikel Arteta, Patrick Vieira and young Hoffenheim manager Nagelsmann, 30, are all due to be interviewed for the Arsenal job with a decision expected to be made in the next two weeks and announced before the World Cup starts.

A younger coach would place more power in the hands of chief executive Ivan Gazidis and his appointees, head of scouting Sven Mislintat and director of football relations Raul Sanllehi. It would also sit well with Josh Kroenke's increased involvement at the club.

Some at the club believe the 38-year-old son of owner Stan Kroenke will soon be appointed chairman, replacing 78-year-old Sir Chips Keswick.
