Arsene Wenger has been approached by Bayern Munich to replace head coach Niko Kovac after an unconvincing start to the season, according to an Arsenal fan blog Arsenal Mania.

The French manager has been out of job since taking charge of his last Premier League game against Huddersfield in May, bringing an end to his 22 year stay at Arsenal.

His failure to return to management quickly, while being a surprise to many has not been due to lack of opportunities as sources close to him have repeatedly confirmed that he has been receiving offers.

Fenerbache President had earlier revealed that his club couldn’t approach Wenger because he had already turned down bigger offers than they could afford and recently sources reported that the 69-year-old had been contacted for the Fulham job which he rejected before it was given to Claudio Ranieri.

Bayern currently sit in fifth position in the Bundesliga table having won just two of their last six league games and recently losing 3-2 to their arch rivals Borussia Dortmund despite leading twice in the game.

The poor results have now mounted pressure on Niko Kovac who took over at the beginning of the season, and the French media claim the Bavarians have made a bid to sign Wenger as his replacement.

Le Professeur revealed last month that he would be returning to management in January, he just might be heading to Munich either at the turn of the year or before it.
