Wenger says Arsenal faces 'massive' challenge to reach top 4

His transfer value was projected at 82 million Euro, or 60.63 million British pounds.He was the only Gunners player to make CIES' top 15 on the 100 man list.

"Yes of course", he replied when asked if the players ask about his future.

"But you have many different opinions there".

Rumours have circulated this week that Arsenal have offered Alexis Sanchez a new £300,000-a-week contract and Arsene Wenger has a new two-year contract on the table. But then you can not respect anymore any wage structure and you put the club in trouble as well.

"What kind of commitment can you have when the player isn't there long-term?"

A number of supporters have been protesting in recent weeks as they want Wenger to leave following a slide in results which has seen Arsenal lose seven of their last 12 games in all competitions. "Always the club has to be the priority", Wenger continued.

The Hammers are now 14th in the Premier League, eight points clear of the relegation zone sat on 36 points, while last season they had 52 points at this stage - an amount West Ham might not even amass this season. We let them down.

United Airlines crew members will no longer be able to bump a passenger who is already seated in one of the airline's planes. The company has taken one step, modifying its overbooking policy in the wake of the public-relations nightmare.

Arsenal have conceded 39 goals this season, which is already more than they conceded in three of their last four seasons.

Finishing outside the top four, something Wenger has never done as Gunners boss, is looking increasingly likely and even a third FA Cup in four years would be unlikely to change the views of most dissenters.

While Wenger has reiterated in the past that Arsenal are no longer in a position where they need to sell their best players, those comments suggest that he'll allow players to go if he feels the long-term commitment isn't there.

We await official confirmation from both player and club, but it does indeed look like a done deal. Are you happy that a left-back has been brought in, or were you hoping for a bigger name arriving in the door?

"We must accept that also modern life has changed a little bit", Wenger said. It's not the fear to fail, it's the desire to make it.

"Secondly, we will do as always". So you can combine the best combination of playing at the top and [earning] big money, in England at the moment.
