A rumour has reached us in the Football Transfer Tavern that has got us all talking, courtesy of Matt Law of the Daily Mirror.

French giants Paris Saint Germain are reportedly looking to tempt Arsene Wenger to the Parc De Princes, and are set to offer the Arsenal manager a £30 million contract.

Reports also suggest that should a move come to fruition, current PSG manager Carlo Ancelotti would be interested in succeeding Wenger at the Emirates, in what would be a spectacular job swap.

The French club were knocked back by the news Pep Guardiola will be joining Bayern Munich last week, and the news Jose Mourinho wants to return to England. They now see Wenger as their number one target, although the Arsenal manager has already said he will not leave before his contract expires in 2014.

Former Chelsea manager Ancelotti has already been told to expect a managerial change in the summer, and is hoping for a return to the Premier League. The Italian enjoyed a successful spell as Chelsea manager from 2009 to 2011, where he won the Premier League and FA Cup double in his first season.

    AW is a great manager and he’s done fantastically well with Arsenal however a change is needed and he should leave Arsenal with his head held high and not with his tail tucked between his legs. I’m not so sure about Carlo Ancelotti at Arsenal though

    If it happened it would be wonderful. Wenger should’ve gone years ago and we are now reaping the decline that is the result of keeping him on when he was and is well past his sell by date. Ancilotti would be a massive improvement.

    Its true hes not won anything with arsenal, but tbh seeing him go would rip a big chunk of the heart of arsenal, its because of him our possession and quality of play has improved vastly bringing class to thd pl!
