The 71-year-old has not managed any team since he parted ways with Premier League side Arsenal in May 2018.

And with Vladimir Petkovic recently named as the new manager of Bordeaux, the former Gunners handler is reportedly being considered the best candidate to take over from him.

Sources claim the Swiss FA wants a coach who can quickly settle into the team as they continue preparations toward the 2022 FIFA World Cup to be staged in Qatar.

SunSport reports that Switzerland made attempts to land Wenger in 1995 but he was too faithful to break his contract with Japanese club Nagoya Grampus back then.

One year after, he was appointed the manager of the North London club and he went ahead to win three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.

The legendary tactician is understood to be fluent in six languages, making him a perfect fit for a Swiss team that comprises German, French, and Italian speakers.

Sources in France assert Wenger has been informed about the role and is thought to be interested.

Wenger names Kante as Europe's best midfielder

Earlier, TUKO.co.ke reported Wenger has singled out N'Golo Kante for praise, claiming the Chelsea star is currently Europe's best all-round midfielder.

Kante has received accolades from all quarters in recent weeks, all thanks to his outstanding end to the season for the Blues.

The midfielder played a central role in Chelsea's Champions League glory on Saturday, May 29, in Porto, picking the Man of the Match award.

The Frenchman also picked the award in both legs of the competition in the semi against Real Madrid.
