Arsenal have approached Thomas Tuchel over manager's job

Just when you thought we'd nearly seen the last of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, it seems the Frenchman is about to sign a new two-year deal... and then come looking to sign a Stoke City star. Two planes were even flown over the Hawthorns, one carrying a banner protesting against Wenger, the other one backing him.

"I'll be surprised if he goes", Pulis told reporters after the game.

Arsenal fell to sixth place in the Premier League following their 3-1 defeat at the hands of West Brom over the weekend. "We hope we can win the Cup and that Arsenal qualify for the Champions League", Giroud told Canal Plus (via The Guardian).

Whatever happens to Wenger, Sagna said he will always be grateful to the man who brought him to the Premier League from Auxerre a decade ago.

Arsenal can not put off the decision forever, and should start preparing to move on, with the club facing potentially their worst league finish in 20 years under Wenger's management.

However, another later proclaimed "In Arsene We Trust #RESPECTAW".

They recently lost 10-2 on aggregate to Bayern in the Champions League, going out in the last 16 for the seventh season running.

Although the Gunners have offered the duo new deals worth over £200,000 a week, it is thought Arsenal's capitulation this season has convinced the pair to move on - with their exits expected to raise around £100million in funds. "The biggest problem for me is it is a dictatorship. It's more. It's not that", he said.

Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has flatly denied reports linking him to the Arsenal job, stating "it is of no interest to me". "It's not the last result that will decide what I will do".

Sagna, who spent seven seasons at Arsenal, said that while he could understand the fans' frustrations, he believes Wenger should remain in charge of the club he has managed for more than 20 years.

Piers Morgan has slammed Arsene Wenger for putting together the worst Arsenal team he has seen since 2006 and has called for the Frenchman to call time on his reign in north London.
