Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has responded to speculation linking him with replacing Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager.
We brought you the news earlier that the German reportedly tops Arsenal’s list of potential candidates with Massimiliano Allegri, Roger Schmidt and Leonardo Jardim also in contention.
Tuchel was asked about the speculation ahead of Dortmund’s clash with Darmstadt 98 and insists he has not been approached by the Gunners.
“You know more than me,” Tuchel he told a press conference on Friday via ESPN.
“I can’t give you any information. I don’t know anything about this issue. I am happy here. It’s no issue.”
Tuchel’s side are a distant 12 points behind leaders Bayern in the Bundesliga this season and are only fourth in the table after 19 games played.

The 43-year-old has been at Dortmund since replacing Jurgen Klopp in 2015 but has yet to taste silverware with the side.
Wenger is under huge pressure at Arsenal after defeats to Watford and Chelsea which have increased speculation over his future at the club when his contract expires this season.
Allegri appears to be the favourite to take over should Wenger depart with the latest reports claiming he has already agreed to leave Juventus this season.
The Italian refused to confirm or deny reports that he was set to move to the Premier League when asked in midweek but has previously admitted that he is learning English.
