The former Chelsea boss is out of work after his unexpected sacking at Stamford Bridge.

Thomas Tuchel is reportedly keen to replace Gareth Southgate as the new England manager after the World Cup.

Chelsea sacked Tuchel only five games into the new season, a shocking decision after their busy transfer window under the German boss.

A number of clubs, including Bayern Munich, are closely following Tuchel’s situation. But the former Paris Saint-Germain coach is reportedly eyeing a move at the international level.

According to The Telegraph, Tuchel would be keen to become the new England manager after the World Cup.

Gareth Southgate is under contract until 2024, but widespread reports claim his time in charge of England ends after the Qatar tournament.

Tuchel would become the third foreign manager, after Sven-Goran Eriksson and Fabio Capello, to coach the Three Lions.

The English FA will most likely consider Tuchel a top candidate if they part ways with Southgate this winter. But the question is: Would the German boss be available then?

The Telegraph report claims he has already rejected two offers from English clubs, waiting for the ‘right opportunity to arrive’.

The England job could extend Tuchel’s visa and keep him in the country where he has lived for the past two years.
