The Frenchman, 71, ended his 22-year spell as Arsenal boss in 2020 and has since been working as FIFA’s chief of global football development.

Switzerland are now on the lookout for a new national coach following Vladimir Petkovic’s departure to manage French club, Bordeaux. But multiple reports in Zurich claim the former Gunners chief is top of the Swiss FA’s wish list.

The report said they want a coach who can step in quickly for the national team’s World Cup bid, and see them through to the Qatar finals in November 2022.

French sources claim Wenger has been sounded out about the vacancy and is thought to be interested.

They tried to recruit Wenger in 1995, while he was coach of Nagoya Grampus, but he refused to break his contract with the Japanese club.

He took charge of Arsenal a year later and led the Gunners to three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.
