FA targeting Arsenal boss Wenger for England job

The FA are targeting Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger for the England job.

The London Evening Standard says the FA were keen on Wenger following Roy Hodgson's departure in June, but the Frenchman insisted he would not break the final year of his contract with the Gunners.

The 66-year-old is yet to agree an extension and is keen to delay a decision on his future until next year. The club's majority shareholder, Stan Kroenke, and chief executive Ivan Gazidis were relaxed about the timing of Wenger's decision but their hand may now be forced if the FA make a formal offer in the coming weeks.

Kroenke is keen to offer Wenger a new contract despite significant fan unrest towards him in recent times.
