The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been very quickly tipped to be the new England manager in the wake of Roy Hodgson’s resignation after the debacle against Iceland, and the rumours are now becoming more widespread with some papers suggesting that Le Prof is taking the possibility seriously.
But the Mail is now reporting that the Arsenal Board are also taking this threat seriously and want to speed up talks with Wenger regarding an immediate two-year extension to his current contract to ward off the chances of this rumour any further-
I know that quite a few Arsenal fans would be keen for the Frenchman to declare his interest in England so that the Gunners can start looking for possible successors, but can anyone really see Wenger walking away from his lifelong “project” of taking Arsenal to the very top of the footballing tree. I personally think it much more likely that he will sit down with Ivan Gazidis and humbly accept a extra millionn or two a year and sign on the dotted line forArsenal again.
What do you think?
