Arsene Wenger says a review of his position as Arsenal manager at the end of the season is not out of the ordinary but he is not guaranteeing seeing out the entirety of his two-year deal.

The Frenchman signed a two-year deal last summer, meaning he will have been at the club for 23 years by the time it ends.

Arsenal failed to reach the Champions League for the first time under Wenger's guidance. Progression has been secured to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup, all but qualified in their Europa League group, and moving up to 6th in the Premier League.

And in an interview with beIN Sports, per the Mirror, the Arsenal manager refused to rule out a move into global management for his next move.

"That's what I said - I have a two-year contract, I will always try to go to the end of my contract but always have the honesty to sit down with the board and see where we go from there".

"I don't know more than you. It's a fact my life is linked with football, in what way will be linked to my physical state", the English Premier League (EPL) club coach said.

Arsène Wenger has remained in charge of the Gunners probably longer than he should have, and with the club once again performing below expectations, Gazzetta dello Sport believe Arsenal want him to take over from the French manager.

The Frenchman added: "I will (always) be in football".

The 2022 World Cup in Qatar looms as an option for Wenger, an option he refuses to rule out.

"Maybe, maybe on the bench." he answered.
