Arsene Wenger staying at Arsenal?

Wenger will be at Arsenal next term

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger reportedly affirmed his decision to remain at the Emirates while discussing the proposed transfer of Sead Kolasinac from Schalke 04.

The Bosnian footballer is understood to have finalised his Bosman switch to north London after the club managed to fend off interest from the likes of Manchester City and Everton.

A report on The Express suggests that the Frenchman had played a key role in luring the left-sided defender to the Gunners after having given assurances of his stay next season.

Wenger has received sound criticism from a section of the club's faithful this season as the club look set to miss out on Champions League football for the first time in 20 years.

In spite of this, the Gunners could still attain cup success via the FA Cup, should they beat London rivals Chelsea in the final later this month.

The Gunners are currently placed fifth in the league standings with 72 points, just one adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool, who hold the final Champions League qualification spot.

Arsenal will have to beat Everton by a fair margin in the final game of the season while hoping that Liverpool drop points versus Middlesbrough in order to guarantee their place in the premier competition next season.
