Arsene Wenger wants to stay put at Arsenal despite fans' unrest

West Bromwich Albion's Hal Robson Kanu celebrates scoring their second goal

Arsenal supporters are split on whether it is time for the under-fire Frenchman to walk away and Smith fears the fan unrest could hover over the club next season if Wenger decides to stay.

It had been thought that the experienced manager had made a decision to step down, but according to The Mirror, Wenger wants to stay with the Gunners and will put pen to paper on an extension to his current deal, which expires this summer.

Alexis Sanchez doesn't look like he "likes" Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, according to Harry Redknapp.

Asked why he thought Wenger would stay, Pulis replied: "Because he told me".

Cue 48 hours of speculation about what might be going through the Arsenal manager's mind, with some outlets reporting that he had chose to stay and others citing "insiders" insisting no final decision has been made.

But the club have denied a claim in Monday's edition of German daily Bild that they have approached Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel as a possible Wenger replacement.

'No, no, no, no, no, I take a bigger perspective than that, ' Wenger said.

Spurs now have a huge chance of finishing above their north London rivals for the first time since the 1994-95 season, as they sit nine points clear in second.

"You will see. Today I do not necessarily worry about that, we are in a unique bad patch we never had in 20 years".

The controversial Arsenal fan even says he would not trust the French manager "to buy me a good sandwhich, let alone a world-class player".

As it is, Wenger believes Arsenal could cope with an absence from the Champions League, a competition in which they have participated for each of the last 19 seasons. It's more, it's not that, " he said. "We have a big fight, I agree with you and it could be very hard now".
