Did Arsenal legend just reveal that Wenger IS leaving?

Martin Keown was talking about Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez’s future at Arsenal, and seems as though he just let slip that Arsene Wenger is leaving the club.

There has been uncertainty over the futures of our two key players this term, as well as that of Arsene Wenger, and Keown seems to believe that all three are leaving this summer.

Alexis Sanchez keeps reiterating that he is willing to stay with the club, but the Gunners hierarchy need to decide on his future, which is a confusing statement to understand… The only thing that makes sense is that he has given them strict contract demands, and he will stay if they are met…

Martin Keown can’t foresee Alexis staying beyond the summer however, and seems to think that both Ozil and Wenger will also be going.

When asked if missing out on Champions League football for next term, Keown said: “It would be another reason for them to demand a move — and Arsene Wenger leaving would be another.

“The club have to work out whether they are willing to push the boat out and pay Sanchez and Ozil substantially more than anyone else.

“They are two special players for Wenger. He warms to players who are particularly gifted with the ball — they are the core of his beliefs in football.

“But there can be problems if you over indulge them. When there was talk of Sanchez and Ozil wanting out, it coincided with Arsenal losing seven games in 12 and getting knocked out of the Champions League.

“Sanchez and Ozil downed tools during those games. There is a fear that if Arsenal give them ridiculous sums of money to stay, they could throw their toys out of the pram once more when things go wrong.

“It seems unlikely that they will stay at the club.”

Did Keown just reveal that Arsene IS going this summer? Do you believe there is any chance we can convince Ozil or Sanchez to stay even if Wenger does go?

    who cares anymore !.

    1. Frank says:

      Agreed. I’m so sick of all this uncertainty. Arsenal is a worldwide joke that even rival fans are singing for Wenger to stay. How many games did Kroenke go to this season? It is embarrassing.

  2. Break-on-through says:

    I think Alexis just means they need to decide whether they want to keep him for another season or if they want to receive a fee for him. I don’t think Keown let anything slip, it’s just an opinion on a possible outcome.

  3. yagoonersya says:

    All the rival fans want Wenger to stay, the board ,the owner and arsenal players only a section of Arsenal fan base want him out so the majority rules

  4. yagoonersya says:

    The only man responsible for change at Arsenal is Kreonke but isn’t a football fan he is busy counting cows at his ranch,if you give someone a contract to do a job and the job isn’t done well who takes responsibility the one who give the contract to a particular person or the one who performed the contract? Wenger is not responsible for being delusional,so if owner of the doesn’t want change who else can make change

      According to reports, He has pushed his cows to one side and is riding into town for crunch talks with Wenger.

    2. luvdaguns says:

      hes busy building a billion dollar stadium for his Rams in LA…

  5. ArseOverTit says:

    Let Sanchez and Ozil leave for their dream jobs in Tescos and TFL respectively and let Wenger follow his dream of being a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing.

  6. ASol says:

    Arsenal as a club is run like an organization and not like a football club.

    I see Arsenal and Sony run the same way,.. have the resource as to be an Elite company/organization but still are content with 2nd best and play safe!

  7. Fatboy Gooney, Too Fat to track back. says:

    If Wenger was leaving, I’m pretty sure that millionaire and Arsenal shareholder ? Piers Morgan would have heard about it before Frankenstein Keown did and if that was the case then the whole world would have known about by the massive party Mr motor mouth would have thrown. For those who Remember, it was Morgan who first shed the light on Wenger’s 2 year contract extension offer and that was at the end of last season.

      Ain’t that a bitch, I left a little word out in the above comment? (IT)

    So Kane has got the Golden Boot then!

    Kane got the Holden Boot then!!

  11. luvdaguns says:

    we have giroud, they have kane… case closed

  12. RSH says:

    Make a flipping decision at this point. Stop waiting on FA Cup. We all know if we win FA Cup, an extension will be announced in 24 hours, but if we lose it will be randomly in the summer after fans cool off. Either way, end result is the same. But this in/out stuff is starting to drag on. Fanbase isn’t going to come together anytime soon either.

    1. RSH says:

      well I guess make an announcement would be the correct thing to say.

  13. eazyarsenal says:

    well harry kane just scored 4 goals – wish we hd a striker like him

    1. RSH says:

      umm Sanogo? Emirates Cup?

  14. Fatboy Gooney, Too Fat to track back. says:

    Leicester 1
    Big Bad Spuds 6

    4 goals for Harry w@nkstaine! Now on 26.
    And there Goes what-was Sanchez’s most realistic chance of a trophy this season.

    1. Twig says:

      Harry Kane is one of our own. He must be respected.

      1. dragunov762mm says:

        You mean, was one of our own? Yeah, the 12 years old Harry Kane? Respect Spuds member? Me? Never!
        Stop another regret! We are now the inferior side of North London. Beside the EPL trophy (which is I can’t imagine when we’ll take it back), the pride of North London should be enough reason for the team to bounce back. But according to Arsene’s motivation skills (which I considered as good as dead) these ain’t gonna be happen. Frustration Cup, if ever exist, we’ll win it every seasons like those 13 years. I told you not to regret but I myself complain too much. But we are Arsenal aren’t we? Endless moan that’s what we do.

  15. John Ibrahim says:

    Wenger is leaving

    1. ArseOverTit says:

      Is that a promise!

  16. Twig says:

    Give Sanchez £200K
    Give Ozil £20,001


  17. Ronny says:

    And him leaving would be another reason. How the he’ll is that telling us he’s leaving it tells us nothing.
    Clutching at straws!

  18. Janssen says:

    I don’t see with the best will in the world how one can deduce from Keown’s statement that Wenger is leaving.
