Joachim Löw: Future Arsenal manager?

Joachim Löw currently coaches the German national side and has revolutionised them into one of the most hard-working and successful national teams in today's game.

Löw has helped greatly in this tactical revolution as he has shaped the national team into his own during his seven years as a manager. Currently, he is probably the most high-profile manager whose contract expires at the same time as Arsene Wenger: the end of July 2014.

Even though I still believe in Wenger, the club has to be revitalised and revolutionised if Arsenal wish to challenge for top honours once again.

There will need to be some sense of stability, but Arsenal fans know that if Wenger does not sign a new deal and does not bring trophies, a change is needed.

There is no-one better to succeed Le Prof than Löw. He does not have great experience at club level, but he has managed Fenerbahce and Stuttgart to reasonable success. However, he is a great tactician and has a great eye for young talent as well as knowing how to nurture it.

Recently, he has brought players like Reus, Gotze and Draxler through their paces in the national side calling them up at a very tender age. He has also been able to get his team playing fantastic football which is only second to Spain in Europe. Germany have been able to go far in every competition they play in, which means Löw has achieved great success.

His tactical nous is one of his greatest attributes. Like Wenger he can create lethal attacking combinations and mould his team to face up against any opposition. Germany also can boast a great defence, something that Löw does not undermine.

His German side play a double-pivot in midfield of Schweinsteiger and Khedira which means that they can both help in attack but also shield the defence with great aplomb.

Löw has Germany attacking both directly and waiting for an opening. Germany can build up the play slowly and break an opponent down with clever movement and quick passing - sounds a lot like Arsenal - or from a couple of passes in a precise, quick counter-attack; those dimensions make Germany a machine in attack and was best showcased in their 6-1 thrashing of Ireland.

What makes them so successful and was key to Dortmund and Bayern's Champions League successes last season were the third-man runs. During an attack the defenders will pick up the striker as a winger hugs the touchline to prepare a cross as well as the other marking an oncoming winger.

A midfielder can then rush into the box unmarked and then slot home without anyone tracking the run. Löw could make Arsenal defensively sound while making them an attacking machine. Arsenal have the players who can slot into the roles with the Ox playing like Reus while Cazorla could conduct play like Ozil.

The possibilities are endless, but if Wenger is unable to bring home a trophy next season, it is probably wise to move on and offer a new contract to Löw rather than Wenger.
