Arsene Wenger looks set to stay on at the club amid calls from a section of the fans for him to leave at the end of the season.

Arsene Wenger has decided he wants to stay on at Arsenal in what will be a massive blow to the ‘Wenger Out’ brigade.

An increasing number of Arsenal fans have been protesting for the Gunners’ boss to quit the club when his contract runs out at the end of the season, and it looked like the Frenchman would listen to the calls of these set of fans and leave, but it appears he will remain in charge for at least one more season, according to latest reports.

The embattled Arsenal boss will have talks with the club’s board after admitting publicly that he has made up his mind on his future — although insiders insist no final decision has been taken and no imminent announcement is expected.

The club say that any decision would have to be a “mutual” one and is not just down to Wenger.

It is also believed the futures of star players Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez could have a huge impact on that outcome.

According to the Mirror, representatives of Sanchez and Ozil have got together and both demanded deals worth in excess of £300,000-a-week. They are not budging, which means they are likely to be off.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis thinks Wenger will stay at the Emirates.

After the Baggies' 3-1 victory at the weekend, Pulis said: “I’ll be surprised if he goes.”

Asked if that is because the Frenchman had told him, he replied, “Yeah, because he told me.”
