Arsenal are expected to announce on Wednesday afternoon that Arsene Wenger has put pen to paper on a two-year contract extension.

The veteran French coach, who turns 68 in October, has kept Arsenal supporters waiting for several months, keen to ensure his own situation wouldn’t distract the team.

Despite that, Arsenal still managed to end the 2016-17 campaign on a high by beating Premier League champions Chelsea in the FA Cup final last weekend.

Alexis Sanchez scored the opener at Wembley - and it seems there’s a high chance that was his final goal for his current employers.
