And sources close to the Arsenal boss say they can sense that – and in private moments, he also alludes to it.
Wenger is out of contract at the end of next season but wants to continue his stay at the Emirates.

He tweeted yesterday: “I don’t want Wenger to ‘respect’ his contract. I want him to respect the club & the fans, and leave now. Time for new ideas.”
