ARSENE WENGER has informally told his Arsenal players that he’s leaving the club, according to reports.
Wenger was involved in a bust up with star striker Alexis Sanchez last week.
The Chile international was then dropped for the clash with Liverpool on Saturday.
But it’s claimed some other players are fiercely loyal to Wenger and could request transfers if the experienced boss moves on.
Wenger has come under even more pressure from the fans this term.
The Premier League giants have faltered in the title race.
And they’re on the cusp of formally exiting the Champions League having been battered 5-1 by Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena last month.
The second leg takes place at the Emirates tonight, but Wenger’s men need a remarkable turnaround to progress in the competition.
Juventus chief Max Allegri has been hotly tipped to take over from Wenger if he does depart.
Allegri has an impressive record in Turin but has recently fallen out with a number of senior players.
Last season he led Juve to Serie A and Coppa Italia glory.
In 2015 he also guided his side to the Champions League final – but they lost 3-1 to Barcelona.
Tonight could be Wenger’s final taste of European action with Arsenal.
His side were humilated by Bayern Munich in the second-leg of their Champions League tie.
Arsenal went ahead through Theo Walcott but another collapse ensured a second 5-1 defeat to the German side.
