Former US national team coach Bruce Arena is set to be named the new head coach of the Los Angeles Galaxy, ESPN reported on Friday.

Arena met Thursday with Galaxy team owner Tim Leiweke, who recently called him the best candidate for the job, ESPN said.

The report also stated that Arena will bring in former Chicago Fire coach Dave Sarachan to be his top assistant.

It would be the third tenure in MLS for Arena, who resigned as coach of the New York Red Bulls in November after they were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs for the second time in as many seasons.

Nothing is official but if the deal does going through Arena would replace Ruud Gullit who resigned earlier in the week.

After Gullit left, the Galaxy immediately fired GM Alexi Lalas.

The Galaxy are struggling at 6-8-6 this season and are winless in their last eight matches.
