Peter Bosz and Lucien Favre are the frontrunners to succeed Thomas Tuchel as head coach at Borussia Dortmund next season.
Tuchel parted ways with Dortmund on Tuesday after a ‘strained’ relationship with the club’s board. He looks set to assume the vacant Bayer 04 Leverkusen hotseat, according to reports in Germany.
And after leading one of the most promising squads in Europe to a third-placed finish in the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal title, the BVB board have acted quickly to find a replacement.
Sport Bild report that TSG 1899 Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann has already rejected their advances while Nice are reluctant to let Favre go, despite the former Hertha Berlin manager agreeing contractual terms.
Bosz is now in pole position to land the job, with the Ajax head coach likely to be enticed by the lure of managing in the German top flight.
