Is Wenger’s Number up at Arsenal?

  Manager Arsene Wenger of Arsenal looks on during a training session at London Colney on March 12, 2013 in St Albans, England

In answer to the entitled question it may well be. If reports are to be believed Paris St Germain’s Qatari owners appear to be in very buoyant mood at the prospect of hiring Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger in the summer with Carlo Ancelotti’s departure imminent. 


Arsene Wenger has divided many opinions this season with such a mixed campaign at the Emirates it is no surprise that rumours of his departure are circulating. Many pundits within the game have said for a long time and Wenger himself also has re-iterated he does not like to walk out on a contract , However it is believed that in the fine print there is something that will allow him to leave as he reaches his final year.


I can see Wenger moving on helping all parties concerned. Arsene Wenger has looked very disjointed and despondent this season and a change would do his career a lot of good with PSG being a very good fit for him indeed. 


Arsenal have definitely suffered from a bit of an Identity crisis in recent seasons incorporate that within another trophy-less season it all boils down to whether the board want the club to be successful or a cash cow? I am worried this is the latter. What the Emirates outfit crave now is a fresh approach not necessarily Wenger’s polar opposite but someone who would relish the challenge. Someone like Klopp, Loew or even the soon to be released Ancelotti. There are many names that could be thrown into the ring. I do not believe the people that suggest that Wenger is the be all and end all of this club he is just merely another cog in the history that is Arsenal Football Club and until fans and the board come to terms with that notion the club will not be able to progress.


If AW is to leave for the Qatari and Parisian billionaires they will be getting a very gifted manager but one thing confuses me. he has never been known to splash the cash and that is what the owners of PSG would expect. having said that he has always been sought after in Ligue 1, the french market he still knows very well and I am sure that is one of the main reasons they have shown strong interest in acquiring his services.


To summarise I can see this being a win win for all parties involved. Wenger can re-adjust and re-focus. PSG get someone they have been tracking for years and most importantly Arsenal can focus on a change of emphasis and maybe a change of philosophy and start to gradually claw their way back to within touching distance of the two Manchester clubs and Chelsea
