Arsenal have been dealt a blow in their long-term vision for the succession of Arsene Wenger.

A report in the Daily Mail claims the Gunners see current Germany coach Joachim Löw as the man to take the reins once Wenger decides to step down.

However, it claims the German FA (DFB) are determined not to let Löw leave once World Cup 2014 in Brazil has concluded.

Arsenal are determined to have the issue of Wenger’s successor sported out well before his departure from Emirates Stadium.

The Frenchman’s current deal expires at the end of next season and the report claims Arsenal officials are ready to consider life without him.

The Mail report claims the DFB are keen to have Löw’s future resolved before the team head out to Brazil next year.

Arsenal see the German as having the perfect vision and style to manager the north London club in the wake of Wenger.

It also says Jürgen Klinsmann’s former assistant is as yet undecided over where his future lies, which Arsenal could take as a good sign.

Löw has managed Germany for seven years since taking over from Klinsmann and his side will be one of the favourites to lift the World Cup in 2014.
