Arsene Wenger 'hopeful' of Santi Cazorla return after injury nightmare



Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has revealed that his former team-mate Patrick Vieira would jump at the opportunity to replace Arsene Wenger as manager of the Gunners.

Wenger has reportedly been told he will not continue as manager after the expiration of his contract in the 2018/19 season.

Coming to an end: Arsene Wenger has enjoyed more than 20 years at the helm of Arsenal.

The report states that even though some Arsenal supporters want Wenger out as soon as possible, the French man may see out his contract.

The Gunners are now six points adrift of fifth-placed London rivals Chelsea, with both sides having a maximum of 15 points to play for from their five remaining league games this season.

Attendance has been decreasing as the Gunners have always been out of the race for a top four finish, and we really didn't have a league title race this season as Manchester City took off right out of the gate and never looked back.

"I have not seen him since the League Cup final because he has gone back to his rehab".

'He has an offer and we want him to stay but he hasn't signed.

The 68-year-old was more evasive on his own future, claiming his main concern at present is delivering Europa League success, with the first-leg of a tricky semi-final against Atletico Madrid coming up after this weekend's Premier League visit of West Ham.

For us it, the Europa League, is the biggest priority now.

"On top of this, our fans are being asked to pay a higher "non-member" price for their tickets to Estadio Metropolitano".

Wenger added: 'This Premier League is special, you know. He is an exceptional football player and overall it is very sad what happened to him.

On Guardiola, Wenger said, "I don't know, Guardiola certainly, and Sean Dyche have been above everyone else". "It's very hard to explain why because until last season, we were one of the best teams in terms of the away record", he said.

My personal situation is not so much my worry.
