Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is stalling on penning a new deal at the club because he has not forgotten the fans attitude towards him were earlier on this season, according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport.
The long-serving Gunners manager has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain when his contract is up and as of yet has refused to pledge his future to the Emirates outfit.
Wenger was widely criticised by the majority of Arsenal fans, and was at one point tipped to get the sack, after failing to sign anyone before the first game of the Premier League season and then losing 3-1 at home to Aston Villa.
However since the record-breaking signing of £42million man Mesut Ozil, Wenger has led his side to the top of the table and established a healthy lead of five points.
It is believed that Paris Saint-Germain are ready to replace current boss Laurent Blanc with Wenger at the end of this year, as they have long viewed him as their ideal manager.
And former PSG president, Charles Villeneuve, has added his voice to those speculating that the Arsenal boss may swap the Emirates for the Par des Princes as opposed to signing a new deal.
Villeneuve said: "He has not re-signed contract. Extension, it has not signed. The President has recently offered him three years, he did not sign anything.
"[This is] Because he does not forget the attitude of the fans and the attitude of the president, who is glowing since it gets the results this year [as opposed to criticising him when things weren't going well].
