When Jurgen Klopp decided to resign as Dortmund manager in 2015, Dortmund decided to go the same route they took when they hired Klopp; hiring a promising young manager from Mainz.
Stylistically, Tuchel would sit Arsenal down to the T. When Tuchel succeeded Klopp, the manager built upon the side known for all out attacking football with Gegenpressing while also making the team better at holding possession of the ball. A known admirer of Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola, Tuchel has done a fine job at the German side despite having lost key players in the summer such as Mats Hummels, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Ilkay Gundogan but still managing to make his Dortmund side competitive in a league that features Bayern Munich.
His style of play is similar to what Arsene Wenger has attempted to play for the last decade but Tuchel is much more tactically flexible than the Frenchman, having played various formations with Dortmund such as 4-3-2-1, 3-5-2 and 3-4-2-1. Tuchel’s flexibility would be an asset for the Arsenal team in order to fit in key players while also proving in his time at Dortmund that should he lose key players like Arsenal may potentially do this summer, he is capable of replacing key players while also promoting and getting the best out of young players.
Julian Weigl has flourished into one of the best defensive midfielders in the world and considering that this is an area in which Arsenal has struggled with in over the years in getting the best out of a youth academy, especially if the Arsenal board aren’t looking to spend money as per usual.
