Bold claim made about future of key Arsenal figure

Plenty of speculation orientates around Arsenal heading into the summer, where we could see a number of changes around the Emirates Stadium.

One of those facing uncertainty on his future is manager Arsene Wenger as there have been a number of suggestions that the long-serving French boss could have his association with the north London giants come to an end.

Wenger has led Arsenal to widespread success during his two decades at the club but has faced difficulties competing with his rivals in the modern era, with the Gunners last lifting the Premier League title in 2004 and yet to win a major European honour.

Arsenal have a strong chance of ending their wait for continental success this season as they march towards Europa League glory, having one foot in the semi-finals after last Thursday’s 4-1 first-leg victory over CSKA Moscow, and a respected journalist believes this season will mark the end for Wenger.

Speaking on The Telegraph’s Total Football Podcast, Sam Wallace said:

“Arsenal need to win (the Europa League). Atletico Madrid are the other big fish left in it. It would be a good way for (Wenger) to go out. I think the chances are he will leave this summer, and what a way to go winning a European trophy. It’s the one thing (Wenger) hasn’t done at Arsenal.”

Wenger only signed a two-year contract extension with the Gunners last summer and has made it clear he will not walk, meaning any decision on changes must come from the board.
