Gunners boss Arsene Wenger pretty much got used to feeling pressure at Arsenal, but the summer behind almost turned out to be lethal for the French tactician.

With Arsenal failing to secure Champions League football for the first time during his two-decade reign at the north London club, Frenchman was thought to be heading towards the exit door after 21 years in charge.

Following months of intense debate and questions regarding his future, Wenger ended up signing a two-year extension to his contract in May. The 67-year-old manager, however, reveals it was not an easy decision, adding he almost quit the club.

According to the BBC, Arsenal have decided to hand veteran boss Arsene Wenger a two-year extension to his contract that expires this summer.

The news will not come as a surprise for most Gunners fans, as Wenger is now part of the furniture at the north London club. The Frenchman has come in for heavy criticism over the past few seasons, despite winning the FA Cup in three of the last four seasons.

However, Gunners fans have become disillusioned with the club’s inability to win the Premier League title and some have called for change. Wenger and the club’s owner Stan Kroenke are reported to have made a verbal agreement on Monday after a meeting to determine the Frenchman’s future.

Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has not been approached by Arsenal, according to Sky Sports. The reports come after German newspaper Bild claimed that the Gunners had approached the highly-rated boss to become the club’s next boss.

Current incumbent Arsene Wenger’s future has of course been in doubt, with his contract expiring this summer. A 3-1 defeat at West Brom on Saturday hindered the team’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League.

Wenger decision ‘very soon’

As I talked about yesterday in my article Wenger stated after the Baggies game that he would reveal his future ‘very soon’. The club have insisted that the decision will be a mutual one between the club and Wenger himself.

Dust has been stirred this weekend with Arsene Wenger suggesting that he has reached decision on his future which will be made public soon.

Following Arsenal’s disappointing 3-1 defeat at the Hawthorns on Saturday, more pressure has been piled on Gunners boss as the North London club are heading towards the lowest Premier League tally since 2011 and the calls for Wenger’s head have become even louder than before.

Arsenal have suffered their fourth defeat in five games which saw them drop to sixth in the Premier League standings.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has denied that Arsenal have held talks with BVB’s highly rated boss Thomas Tuchel. This statement comes after recent speculation in the media that the Gunners had held talks with the former Mainz boss.

No Tuchel talks

In a quote taken from the Daily Mirror Watzke said: “It is a fact that nobody from Arsenal called us. We’re talking about completely fictional stuff here,”

“Some day in May we will sit down and analyse this season. He is still under contract here for another year. That’s why I don’t understand all the speculation.”

According to a report on the Daily Mirror website, Arsenal are looking at Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe and Dortmund’s Thomas Tuchel as potential replacements for long-serving boss Arsene Wenger.

The veteran Frenchman’s contract expires next summer and there is little indication whether he will stay on at the north London club or leave the club. How the Gunners do for the rest of the campaign will determine if Wenger gets handed a new contract.

Arsenal have been given fresh hope in pursuit for Borussia Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan as Armenia international has refused to sign a new contract with Bundesliga outfit, according to reports from Bild.

Mkhitaryan is heading into the final year of his deal with Dortmund and is believed to have no intention of putting pen to paper on a new deal.

Borussia Dortmund are faced with a difficult challenge as they need to either sell the 28-year-old during the summer transfer window or risk losing him for nothing next year.
