After a month out of the game however, Tuchel seems to be crafting a way back to the dugout.

According to German outlet Bild as quoted on social media, the former Paris Saint-Germain boss would consider taking charge of the Three Lions if the role became available after the 2022 World Cup.

Current boss Gareth Southgate is under immense pressure following England's recent poor run of form.

The world football giants are winless in six matches ahead of Qatar's 2022 edition of the World Cup.

The Sun claims there is some suggestion Southgate could part ways with England after the tournament regardless of how far the team go.

Meanwhile, Tuchel will have to contend with competition from several top managers in his bid to manage England.

His successor at Chelsea, Graham Potter is believed to be a firm favourite for the role, while Eddie Howe, Mauricio Pochettino and Steve Cooper also touted as possible candidates.
