One of the highest profile names in football, Jurgen Klinsmann, is suddenly on the job market. Might the German find a home on UK soil? Be it with a Premier League football side or, better yet, England’s national team? Betting odds are trading for both instances and more.

Ever since the news of the former German player and boss’ sacking from the US Men’s national football team leaked to the press, speculation is rife about his next posting.

Klinsmann is best known for what he did with his native side at the national level, steering a free-flowing, attacking-minded Die Mannschaft to the 2006 World Cup semi-finals in Germany.

Assuming the same posting with the US wasn’t as successful as many States-side had hoped it would be. That’s not down to the manager alone, despite rumours of a rift with the organisation and players. Fact is: there is a decided lack of home-grown talent across the pond, making any desired transformation in American football a long shot bet. USA is hardly a powerhouse in football, is it?

That said, he still managed to take what was at his disposal with the USMNT all the way to the R16 at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, finishing ahead of Portugal (current reigning European champions) against the World Cup odds then..

Sportsbooks are trading Jurgen Klinsmann at 7.00 football odds to become England’s next manager. This market is currently led by Gareth Southgate at the best-price of 1.1.

Others in the running for the England job include Arsene Wenger, priced at 21.00 or thereabouts depending on your preferred bookmaker. ‘The Professor’s’ contract with Arsenal is up by the end of this season, so he might be a reasonable bet to consider outside of Premier League betting. Other familiar names in this market include former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini (25.00) and Alan Pardew (26.00), to name a few.

The top England job aside, Jurgen Klinsmann’s name is being linked to three Premier League clubs: Chelsea, Arsenal and Man United at the sports betting exchange. Admittedly, the German is a bit of a long shot for Stamford Bridge seeing how well Antonio Conte is commandeering the ship these days. You can back Klinsmann to steal the job at 26.00. Taking over from Jose Mourinho at the Old Trafford is priced slightly shorter at 23.00. Whereas taking over from Arsene Wenger at the Emirates is priced at a large 67.00. Two decades into the Frenchman’s career with Arsenal, you could say he has a deathly grip on the job. Where would Gunners fans be without his trademark poufy jacket anyway.

In the event, Klinsmann is sure to make headlines soon. He’s not going to be in the dole queue for long. Seeing he’s enjoyed stints in Germany and USA, it’s only sensible he’d move to another major football market such as the UK. Of course, taking over the Three Lions looks more up his Straße; hence, it’s the likeliest football bet. That doesn’t mean he might not end up in the dugout of one of the Premier League clubs mentioned above. Hmm,…Jose Mourinho?
