Arsene Wenger has reiterated his desire to continue his managerial career and says he has received more offers than he expected. The Arsenal captain's absence at the beginning of next season might further escalate instability in the Gunners team.
Wenger, who will leave Arsenal at the end of this campaign after a reign of nearly 22 years, said he was hopeful Jack Wilshere would sign a new deal with the midfielder's contract set to expire next month.
"I must say the squad doesn't need much, because there's a huge potential in there", he said ahead of Wednesday's meeting with Leicester City in the Premier League, per Adam Crafton of the Daily Mail.
Foxes boss Claude Puel has come under pressure of late after failing to register a win in his last five games in the top flight.
Meanwhile, Leicester have a host of injury problems with Kasper Schmeichel (ankle), Shinji Okazaki (ankle), Wilfred Ndidi (hamstring), Danny Simpson (groin), Robert Huth (ankle) and Matty James (Achilles) definately out along with Ben Chilwell and Daniel Amartey.
Apart from them, Ben Chilwell, Daniel Amartey and Vincente Iborra all remain doubtful to participate in the game.
The visitors will also have a handful of players unavailable due to injuries.
Wilshere obviously has a close relationship with Arsene Wenger so there was a growing feeling that Wenger's impending exit will mark an end for the player too.
Wenger may not be a long-term solution, but if they are looking for stability for a couple of seasons and aiming to maintain their Champions League position, he would be a safe choice.
Which team are you supporting in the 2018 World Cup? Xhaka's game has seen him become undroppable in recent months and has played a heavy load of games in the centre of midfield.
On the other side of the coin, Leicester City are on holiday mode.
"When he was a young boy he started in his job, I was his first contract - his first signing".
