Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is set to agree a new deal two-year deal to remain as Gunners boss, according to The Daily Star.
The 67-year-old has been subject to immense protests following a frustrating campaign at the Emirates, which has seen Wenger’s men lose at the last 16 stage of the Champions League for a seventh straight year, and fail to mount a serious Premier League title challenge.
And his record of finishing inside the top four in every season in charge of the North London club is under serious threat this time round, given that his side are seven points adrift of Manchester City in fourth ahead of their trip to a resurgent Crystal Palace on Monday (8pm kick-off).
Nonetheless, recent reports suggest that Wenger will indeed stay on as Gunners boss, although the man himself is keeping his cards close to his chest despite repeated questioning about his future.
Wenger once again deflected questions over his future plans in his pre-match press conference on Thursday morning, instead turning his attentions to a potentially tricky trip to Sam Allardyce’s Palace on Monday.
Both Liverpool and Man City picked up victories over the weekend to pile the pressure on Wenger’s men, with anything less than victory not good enough from their visit to Selhurst Park on Monday.
