Olivier Giroud claims Arsenal's players all "support" Arsene Wenger and want the manager to sign a new deal to stay at the club next season.

Multiple sources on Sunday night and Monday morning have reported that Wenger will tell the Arsenal board that he wants to stay at the club beyond this season - for either one or two more years - in a decision that will not be a particularly popular one if and when it is confirmed.

Their latest loss came in a 3-1 defeat at West Brom on Saturday as Arsenal dropped to sixth in the Premier League and face the prospect of failing to finish in the top four for the first time since Wenger joined the club in 1996.

"I'll be surprised if he goes", Pulis said after the game.

Asked why he was so convinced, Pulis added: "Because he told me".

Democrats must make the Gorsuch hearings about Trump's contempt for our democracy
The last Supreme Court nominee to talk expansively about his judicial philosophy was Robert Bork, who was defeated 58-42 in 1987. White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus has said that Mr Gorsuch is a judge with "the vision of Donald Trump".

Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has distanced himself from reports he has been approached to succeed Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

Giroud has also had his say on his compatriot's future, hoping Wenger will extend his stay in north London.

The Arsenal board had insisted that the final decision would not be exclusively on Wenger as to whether or not he stays after this season (despite it being public knowledge that they have offered him a new contract).

According to Staff at the club's London Colney training base, Wenger is showing a positive change in his mood which is being viewed as an indication that he has chose to stay.

The circus now surrounding a man who has spent 21 years at Arsenal even led an old adversary, West Brom manager Tony Pulis, to speak up in his defence. That could be identified with a second plane saying: "In Arsene We Trust".
