With Arsenal starting their season off with a 3-1 home defeat to Aston Villa, without a trophy in eight years and a lack of recent transfer activity, manager Arsene Wenger is in trouble.

The 63-year-old has been key to success at the north London club ever since he was appointed manager in 1996.

His honours at Arsenal currently stand at three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and four Community Shields.

He has achieved a lot in his time at the Gunners, earning a reputation of one of the best managers in the world and definitely one of the finest in Premier League history.

Even with poor squads he has inspired Arsenal to qualify for the Champions League every season for numerous years, and his sides have more often than not competed well in Europe.

His Arsenal side even over turned a 12-point gap from rivals Tottenham to gain a Champions League place a few years ago, but the sale of big players such as Ashley Cole, Samir Nasri, Cesc Fabregas and more recently Robin van Persie, have sparked unhappy Arsenal fans to complain.

With Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester City all spending big this summer, Arsenal have made bids for strikers Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain, but these bids were both rejected.

This has affected the Arsenal team, and certainly played a part in their recent home defeat to Aston Villa. A big name would help the side massively but Wenger doesn't seem to attract these players anymore; his trophy drought is not attractive at all.

Say Arsenal sack Wenger, he would leave on a low. He does not deserve to get the boot, but maybe he should think about leaving the club in the near future.

He has achieved great things in his time at Arsenal and if he leaves, he will leave on a high.

He could resign tomorrow and could benefit from it immediately. Arsenal could appoint a big manager to attract big players and Wenger could easily earn himself a job at a big European team.

The current Arsenal boss could still have at least a season left at the Emirates and if he wins a trophy and qualifies for the Champions League again, he will be considered great one more. If not, he should mull over leaving before it gets too late.

Whatever happens, he is a legend at Arsenal.
