It’s no big secret that Arsene Wenger is under huge pressure regarding his job from the fans and the media. Are they right? Should Wenger finally leave after 21 years of faithful service? Let’s take a closer look.

In order to preserve a tiny chance of reaching a top-four spot ‘til the end of the season, Arsenal have to at least make sure no points are dropped against the so-called “lesser” teams. The game against the newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion, who hadn’t won a game against a top-six side all season, was probably the perfect opportunity for the players to get some confidence back after getting properly beaten at home by Manchester City three days earlier, and book three points in the process.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson in the subject of interest from Swansea City and newly-promoted Brighton & Hove Albion. The 25-year-old has been subsidiary at the Emirates Stadium for some time and has been available for transfer for 12 months. Manager Arsene Wenger is keen to get him off the wage bill.

Jenkinson made just five appearances for the first-team in all competitions last season, amounting to 254 minutes of playing time. Crystal Palace were keen to provide him a chance at redemption, but the right-back rejected their terms. This summer could see him finally make the move away from Arsenal, however, after being stuck in football limbo for some time.
