But these developing rumours will likely now anger Arsenal fans further, with vast swathes of them voicing their disapproval at the manager in recent weeks.

The veracity of the story has been disputed however, and Arsenal have moved to deny it.

A report claims that Arsene Wenger decides to stay at Arsenal, and will soon pen a new deal with the capital club.

Asked whether some supporters' actions in urging him to quit were disrespectful towards a manager who has brought nine major trophies to the club, including three Premier League titles, Wenger said: "I don't know".

German newspaper Bild reported late on Sunday that Tuchel has been contacted by Arsenal as they prepare for the possibility that Wenger could leave the club at the end of the season.

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.

May to trigger Brexit on March 29
May embarked Monday on a tour of Britain as part of ongoing engagements with devolved regions ahead of triggering the Article 50. Her visit comes after she rejected calls for a potential second independence referendum for Scotland before a deal is reached.

Although a 3-1 defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday night severely dented their hopes of finishing inside the Premier League's top four, Wenger indicated to reporters that he had come to a decision on whether or not to stay at Arsenal.

With this in mind, we're sure everyone can appreciate the irony of the advert - featuring Tottenham's Harry Kane and the word "celebrate" - which coincidentally appeared slap bang in the middle of a Telegraph story on Wenger's desire to stay with the club.

Wenger said on the weekend: "It will not necessarily be linked with that [Champions League qualification] because I've done the top four 20 times".

Some reports are suggesting that a one-year deal is to be announced, which will no doubt anger fans, and as much as I don't think they are guessing, it makes sense. There were "Wenger out" banners and chants respectively seen and heard in the away end, and two planes - one pro, the other anti - circled the skies overhead.

There was even a chorus of, 'You don't know what you're doing, ' from Arsenal fans when a hobbling Alexis Sanchez was substituted. I don't judge other people. "We need to fight", said Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain afterwards, but actions speak louder than words and on Saturday, his Arsenal players' lack of that very quality left Wenger looking a lonely man indeed.
