There’s plenty of speculation surrounding Arsenal heading into the summer transfer window, with increasing suggestions that Arsene Wenger’s long-term association with the north London giants will come to a close.

The French manager is under significant pressure to win the Europa League this season, with a top-four finish in the Premier League looking beyond the Gunners’ reach, to seal a return to the Champions League next year.

Failure, or even success, could spell the end of Wenger’s time with Arsenal and one man linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium is Celtic’s record-breaking boss Brendan Rodgers, who has led the Scottish side to vast success in recent years.

However, Arsenal invincible Kolo Toure, who also won the SPL with Celtic, believes that the Northern Irishman will not seek an exit from Celtic Park as his work at the club is not yet done.

Speaking to Sky Sports, former Ivorian defender Toure said:

“He’s been in the Premier League and he nearly won the Premier League. Coming [to Celtic], this is a club of his heart, and he wants to do as well as possible here. I don’t know what his thought is for the future, but right now I think he wants to do the best here, for sure.”

Rodgers only signed a contract extension with the Scottish champions last summer, extending his deal until 2021.
