Arsene Wenger has made up his mind about his future as Arsenal’s crisis deepens.
Arsenal lost 3-0 at Crystal Palace on Monday night to leave their top-four hopes hanging by a thread.
Wenger has a two-year contract on the table but has not yet announced he will stay, apparently causing a rift with Gunners chief executive Ivan Gazidis.

But Express Sport understands Wenger HAS made a decision on what he will do – but will not even tell his closest friends, some of who were involved in bringing him to the club in 1996.
And sources close to Arsenal have revealed that the dressing room is now split between players who support Wenger and those who either want to leave or want a new manager brought in.
Juventus boss chief executive Massimiliano Allegri remains the bookies’ favourite to be the next Arsenal manager at around 3/1, with Borussia Dortmund’s Thomas Tuchel, Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone and Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe also in the frame.

Arsenal are planning a stunning £200million transfer spree this summer – and Arsene Wenger will be the man to spend it.
The Mirror say Wenger is going to be in charge this summer and wants to sign a goalkeeper, two full-backs, a defensive midfielder, two wingers and a striker.
Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette, Celtic duo Kieran Tierney and Moussa Dembele, Crystal Palace ace Wilfried Zaha and goalkeepers Jordan Pickford and Jack Butland of Sunderland and Stoke respectively are targets.

The Frenchman could sell Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Olivier Giroud, David Ospina, Lucas Perez and a raft of squad players in a mega summer overhaul.
The Telegraph say Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is interested in £35m-rated Oxlade-Chamberlain.
And Manchester City are looking to lure Sanchez to the Eithad with a £50m bid planned, although there is a feeling he could run his contract down at the Emirates and leave on a free next summer.
