Arsenal boss unaware of Barcelona's interest in Hector Bellerin

'The Mugabe of Arsenal': Fan compares Wenger to Zimbabwean autocrat

'We have just extended the contract, ' said Wenger.

Of course, you can hardly blame them, considering the job offers they received, yet there is a feeling that this exodus of those close to the 67-year-old could suggest his time at Arsenal is finally coming to an end.

Earlier in the week it was reported that Wenger's right-hand man Primorac was set to leave and take up a managerial post in Turkey - but the Frenchman once again channelled his inner Donald Trump to play down the rumours.

However, Wenger reacted angrily to speculation by labelling it as "fake news".

The plane is expected to carry the message "No new contract" in protest against the possibility of Arsene Wenger signing another two-year deal at the club. And according to Marca, City's Premier League rivals, Arsenal, are "very interested" in signing Lejeune at the end of the season.

It's not been an easy few months for Arsenal fans.

However, in addition to bringing in an enormous amount of revenue, Wenger does not spend a lot of money on players, saving much of it.

A woeful run of form for the North London giants has seen them slip to fifth in the table and the Gunners fell five points behind fourth-placed Liverpool at the weekend- although Arsenal do have two games in hand over the Reds.

He has won three Premier League titles, six FA Cups and guided Arsenal to a top four finish in each of the past 20 seasons. You have not the same number of games, you have not the continuity home and away.

"You look at the team who are going to in the league, Chelsea, they've got a world-class goalkeeper, top defenders, an unbelievable midfielder in N'Golo Kante, then Eden Hazard and Diego Costa who they can rely on for goals".

For now, the "Wenger Out" banners will remain hung around some parts of the Emirates Stadium, and at the end of the season, the owners and the board may have to decide whether they want to renew Wenger's contract, or sack the greatest manager in their club's history.
