British tabloid, The Sunday Express, reports that Arsenal will move for the departing Paris Saint-Germain coach Emery after top contenders Luis Enrique and Max Allergi expressed reservations about the two tier management structure.
He will be tasked with turning big-spending PSG into a side capable of winning the Champions League.
The Spaniard confirmed he would be stepping down at the end of the season in April, and Tuchel is the man PSG have chosen to lead them after the World Cup.
PSG coach Unai Emery has opened the door to a summer move to England.
"The German coach has signed a two-year contract with the French champions".
Speaking to the club's official website, Tuchel affirmed that he was relishing the challenge of occupying the hotseat at Parc des Princes.
Despite the concrete details relating to the meeting still not revealed, the key players that will compose the 2018/19 season squad were on the agenda with Tuchel naturally anxious to know if he can count on the services of Neymar next season at Parc des Princes.
'His ambitious personality, his assertive taste for forward-moving play and his strength of character are part of the style we have always had at PSG'.
The 44-year-old was appointed at Jurgen Klopp's successor at Dortmund in 2015 and won the DFB-Pokal last season, but left after falling out with the club hierarchy.
