Arsenal reportedly rule out sacking manager Arsene Wenger, but there are doubts that the Frenchman will opt to walk away at the end of the season.

The Arsenal hierarchy have reportedly ruled out the option of dismissing manager Arsene Wenger when he comes to the end of his contract in the summer.

The Frenchman's future remains in doubt since he is yet to put pen to paper on a fresh deal, despite claiming that he intends to stay at the Emirates.

Despite reports that Wenger is expected to sign a new two-year contract, it is understood that some members of the coaching staff and board are concerned that the Frenchman may opt to leave the club after 18 years in charge, according to The Telegraph.

The Gunners are currently fourth in the Premier League table, but are in danger of failing to qualify for the Champions League following Sunday's 3-0 defeat to Everton.

The Merseyside outfit are now just one point adrift of Arsenal, who could end their eight-year trophy drought by winning the FA Cup this season, with a game in hand.

Reports have claimed that the mood of the supporters is likely to influence Wenger's decision when the season comes to a close.
