Crystal Palace vs. Arsenal: Arsene Wenger Talks Gunners Future, More in Presser

Frederick Owens | 09 April, 2017, 05:25

"I believe that he wants to stay at the club and it is about doing a deal with his agent", the Frenchman said, as quoted by the BBC.

Arsenal last won the Premier League title in 2004 and the pressure on Wenger has intensified this season, with the club often looking as though they will miss out on a top four spot that secures Champions League qualification.

Wenger himself is out of contract at the end of the season, but once again refused to clarify his future as he focussed on Monday's away game at Crystal Palace.

But Sanchez has suggested he could be tempted to leave Emirates Stadium if he becomes concerned Arsenal are sliding into obscurity.

The Alexis Sanchez drama broke out shortly thereafter amidst rumors that the Chilean global was eager to leave the club in the summer transfer window, which created another needless, negative talking point surrounding Arsenal.

Sky Sports pundit, Paul Merson, predicts Arsenal to drop points against Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Koscielny went off at half-time during Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Manchester City last weekend and the France global was absent when the Gunners saw off West Ham 3-0 on Wednesday.

Manchester United are apparently keen on the 16-year-old winger and the Mail say Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Stoke have also been made aware of him.

"I think the club know they need to strengthen", Ozil told the Daily Mail.

Now, the story is shifting to Alexis wanting just one more year to see if the Gunners can pull out that trophy that they just can't manage to find.

Without Champions League football next season, Sanchez will feel his talent is being wasted at Arsenal.

More importantly, it could also have an impact on the players they sign with world class targets reluctant to join a club outside of the Champions League.

"I think we have just been through a bit of a tough patch but hopefully we have came out of that now and we still have a lot of things to play for this season, such as the top four and the FA Cup".

"He (Wenger) has been an outstanding manager in this league for 20-odd years so I'm sure he will be fighting with his players to put things right".
