Ian Wright predicts when Wenger will leave Arsenal

The long serving manager is under pressure at the Emirates.

Arsene Wenger will leave Arsenal at the end of next season, Gunners legend Ian Wright has told BT Sport.

The long serving French manager has come under increased pressure at the Emirates this season, as their title challenge has petered out.

After topping the table at the end of 2015, they have slipped down into third place and currently sit 10 points behind leaders Leicester City.

That has left fans calling for Wenger to leave the club, with many believing a change is needed if they are to become genuine challengers in future.

So far the manager has stood firm in saying he won’t leave, and Wright believes it will be another year before he leaves the club.

“When you see the season, and the way the season has gone, fans will be disappointed,” he told BT Sport.

“But I think it will run it’s natural course, which would mean 2017 is when he will probably leave.”

The best way for Wenger to win back the fans backing this summer would arguably be to spend big in the transfer window.

It is well known that the club has money to spend and doing just that on world class talent to turn them into genuine contenders would be warmly welcomed.

Chief among his thoughts must surely be his attack, with the Gunners faithful having long called for a top striker to be added to the squad as questions remain over Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott.
