Thomas Tuchel has been sacked by Paris Saint-Germain with the French champions sitting in third in the Ligue 1 standings after 17 matches.
The German led PSG to their first Champions League final last season where they were defeated 1-0 by Bayern Munich at the Estádio Sport Lisboa.
Tuchel has been sacked by PSG, reports claim
According to Sport Bild, the 47-year-old has been dismissed after two-and-a-half years in charge at the Parc des Princes.
Tuchel led PSG to the Ligue 1 title in his two full seasons in charge at the club and also won the Coupe de France and the Coupe de la Ligue in his time in Paris.
The decision to part ways with Tuchel came hours after the French hammered Racing Strasbourg 4-0, which saw them close the gap to Ligue 1 leaders Lyon.
It is understood sporting director Leonardo relieved Tuchel of his duties on Wednesday night  – just four months after the Champions League final.
The pressure is mounting on Arteta
Speculation will now mount that Tuchel could be headed to Arsenal as pressure grows on Mikel Arteta.
The German has been instilled as one of the favourites to take over at the Emirates as the Gunners sit precariously in 15th position in the Premier League.
Arsenal are without a domestic win since a 1-0 victory at Manchester United on November 1 and head into a Boxing Day London derby at home to Chelsea.
Make or break games against Brighton, West Brom and Newcastle then follow in what will surely decide Arteta’s fate in north London.
