Arsenal are reportedly interested in hiring former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, according to reports.
The Portuguese tactician was relieved of his duties as manager of Chelsea FC last November and there have been lots of reports regarding the three-time Premier League winner’s future.
Mourinho is widely expected to take over from Louis Van Gaal as manager of Manchester United this summer with some reports claiming the Portuguese reached an agreement with the Old Trafford club in February.
Few days back, Fichajes published a report claiming the Gunners were interested in signing Mourinho as a replacement for Wenger which a club insider strongly denied and labelled “nonsense”.
However, there is a new twist in the report linking Mourinho to Arsenal as Duncan Castles of the Sunday times revealed that the Gunners contacted Mourinho through a third party.
Jose Mourinho is considering an approach to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal. Mourinho was approached by a third party claiming to represent Arsenal at the beginning of this month, following successive losses to severely understrength Manchester United and Swansea City sides. The former Chelsea manager was asked if he would be interested in working at Arsenal should Wenger’s position be made vacant, and to hold off on making a decision on other offers until May, as quoted by 101 great goals.
It is believed that Inter Milan and Roma have also offered Mourinho the chance to work in the Serie A again but the Portuguese would prefer a job in the Premier League.
