Arsene Wenger is reportedly open to staying at Arsenal under a slight change in the running of the club, which could mean working with a director of football of sorts.

The Frenchman is out of contract with the Gunners at the end of this season, but talks over his future have dragged on over the last few months without any confirmation of whether or not he’ll stay on.

Arsenal play Everton in the Premier League this Sunday in what could be Wenger’s final match in charge, but latest reports suggest he will agree to a new deal at the Emirates Stadium.

According to the Daily Mirror, Wenger has accepted working under slightly different conditions to keep his job, following poor performances and results this season.

The 67-year-old has been with the north Londoners since 1996, but has struggled to maintain the early success he enjoyed at the club.

Speaking about the prospect of working with a director of football, Wenger said: ‘I am always open to things that improve the quality and the future of the club.

‘Apart from that, after that you have to see if it’s really efficient, because the titles do not always make you better.

‘Director of football, when I say that, is a guy who decides the decisions that are normally are down to the manager. That means selection of players, buying and all matters that concern the functioning of the team on a daily basis.

‘Of course we can need help to become better. I am always open to open that.’
