Wenger said in the aftermath of Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at West Brom that he would make a decision on his Arsenal future “soon”. And the indications are that he wants to stay on as Gunners boss.
Emirates chiefs are adamant that the Frenchman is master of his own fate — even though there is a growing feeling that change is needed at the club.
PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi believes Wenger can improve on what has been a disappointing season under Emery.
They were eliminated from the Champions League by Barcelona in humiliating fashion — losing the second leg 6-1 to go out 6-5 on aggregate — and trail Monaco at the top of Ligue 1.
As SunSport revealed earlier this month, Wenger is due to meet with his Arsenal bosses in the next few days to determine his future — amid fan protests calling for his head.
The 67-year-old feels he still has at least three years left in management.
Arsenal yesterday rejected claims they have made an approach for Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel.
Juventus boss Max Allegri remains at the top of the Gunners’ list of preferred candidates, though they will await Wenger’s decision before engaging in negotiations.
But Emirates chiefs fear Mesut Ozil will quit the club this summer.
Ozil, who was due to join up with Germany’s squad last night, has yet to agree terms on a new deal.
Wenger was furious with his £42.5million playmaker after he limped out of a training session on Friday citing a hamstring injury.
Ozil, 28, missed the disastrous defeat at West Brom but wanted to report for international duty before tomorrow’s friendly with England.
Wenger’s patience is wearing thin with his top stars and he is ready to let Ozil go in the summer.
