Arsene Wenger’s popularity at the Emirates appears to have taken a bit of a battering in recent weeks.
Although the Gunners beat Hull 2-0 yesterday, this came after back-to-back defeats against Watford and Chelsea respectively.
Gunners fans seem to be split on whether or not Wenger, who is the final year of his contract, should stay.
Although a two-year deal remains on the table, the Arsenal board appear to be making contingency plans in the event he should leave.

Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel and Juventus manager Max Allegri have been sounded as potential options.
And according to the Sunday Mirror, Newcastle boss Benitez is now on the shortlist too.
It is believed Benitez and Thierry Henry, who has cut his managerial teeth working with Belgium, could form a double act.
Were Benitez to leave Tyneside, it would be a big blow for the Magpies supporters, who could be celebrating promotion back to the Premier League come May.
