Over the last few seasons, Arsene Wenger’s future as Arsenal manager has been up for debate.
The Frenchman has been in charge of the North London outfit for the past two decades, and in that time has guided the team to three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.
During the 2016-17 campaign, due to another season of failing to sustain a challenge for the English crown, plenty of supporters began getting restless.
Numerous protests were staged to force Wenger out, but the experienced coach was resilient and instead signed a new two-year deal.
The 68-year-old is almost midway through his deal, and a large number of supporters remain keen on him walking out the door.
Now, The Telegraph journalist Sam Wallace has claimed while speaking on the newspaper’s Total Football Podcast that Wenger is likely to step down from his role at the end of the season.
Twitter account LTArsenal posted the news, which sparked a reaction from fans.
LIKELY isn't confirming anything as there's a big chance he might stay. I would only believe he's stepping down if Arsenal confirmed it.

The fact that it is only "Likely" is ludicrous.

Arsenal are expected to miss out on a top-four place as they are 13 points off the pace with six games left to play.
However, they can still qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League, of which they are in the quarter-finals of.
