Wenger spoke to the press ahead of his side's final Premier League fixture of the season against Everton, via Reuters UK, and stated that he would hold discussions with Arsenal's board on 27th May to finalise his future plans.

Their increasing frustration, delaying of contract negotiations and apparent unhappiness with some teammates all point towards an impending exit this summer with just one year remaining on their contracts.

But the 28-year-old has also insisted it is "very bad" that fans have been demonstrating against Wenger and calling for him to go this summer, when his contract expires.

"You have certainly to know that there are many aspects of a football club which have to be discussed at a board meeting. And everyone will be wanting them so it will be very interesting to see who these players will look to play for, what manager". "At the moment I think we should focus on short term and what's going on on Sunday and in the cup final".

"After that, what happens to me is less important".

"Of course I will be there".

Arsenal is in real danger of missing out on a top-four finish for the first time in 20 seasons under the Frenchman.

Manchester City also have a very slim chance of dropping out of the top four meaning that Liverpool and the Gunners could both qualify for the Champions League.

Watford said this week that manager Walter Mazzari would step down after the final game of the season against Manchester City.

We are professional and we want to win.

"We need to find a good balance and not have such different results and performances at home and away".

Midfield: If Monreal remains at the back then Kieran Gibbs should continue in the left wing-back position while Hector Bellerin will retain his place on the right with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain still nursing a hamstring injury.

Ultimately Wenger did not want to get drawn into too many criticisms of his famous former captain.

Adams, who twice won the double of Premier League and FA Cup under Wenger, was critical of the Frenchman in his autobiography "Sober", which is being serialised by the Sun.

Wenger's "increasingly embattled status" has been "starkly illustrated" by claims about his coaching ability from Arsenal legend Tony Adams, reports The Times.

"Back in the day I said in an interview coaching wasn't Arsene's strong point", he wrote.
