Wenger Wants Lyon Job

Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger is interested in becoming Lyon manager, sources have told ESPN FC.

Wenger is also considered as an attractive option by the French club although their priority is Laurent Blanc.

Sources have told ESPN FC that former France boss Blanc is the main candidate and would meet Lyon on Tuesday to discuss the role, which would be his first job since leaving Paris Saint-Germain in 2016

Wenger, who turns 70 on October 22, left Arsenal in May 2018 after 22 years in charge and has turned down a lot of offers, including from Premier League clubs, in that time.

Although he has agreed in principle to take on a technical role at FIFA, his priority is to make a return to club management as soon as possible.

Lyon sacked Sylvinho on Monday after a poor start to the domestic season.
