Arsene Wenger gets two years contract offer from Japanese side Vissel Kobe

- Arsene Wenger stepped down as Arsenal manager at the end of the 2017/18 season

- Having stayed out of football management for a season, the Frenchman is keen for a return

- Japanese side, Vissel Kobe, is said to have lined up Wenger to take over as manager

High-flying Japanese club, Vissel Kobe, has reportedly offered Arsene Wenger a two-and-a-half year contract to take over as manager.

Wenger has been out of job since quitting his role as manager with Arsenal in the summer of 2018.

He was subsequently replaced by Unai Emery who has guided Arsenal to Europa League final, where they will battle Chelsea.

However, Wenger could be poised for a stunning return to football management to Asia, where he once worked in a similar position.

The 69-year-old managed Nagoya Grampus Eight for a year before joining the Gunners in 1996.

According to Mail Online citing Goal.com, Wenger has now been offered a deal worth £3.5m per year to manage Vissel Kobe.

A move to the club could see him manage decorated footballers including Andres Iniesta, David Villa and Lukas Podolski.

Meanwhile, Wenger recently admitted he was keen to get back into management, but could not divulge his next destination.

"I will go back into football, for sure. In what position I don't know, whether that is as a manager or not. The appetite, the desire, is still there," he said.
"Originally I said I want to manage straight away again. After that I thought maybe I take a little distance," he added.
