Arsene Wenger has bore the brunt of much criticism as Arsenal manager this season.

The Gunners were once widely tipped to romp to the Premier League title yet they currently sit third and face a battle to remain in the top four.

Instead, Leicester City were crowned English champions on Monday night following what has been a quite remarkable campaign.

Opinion is split over whether Wenger should stay or go at the Emirates Stadium, with many insisting the time has come for the Frenchman to step down and allow the club to take a new direction.

Protests - albeit tame ones - were staged during Arsenal’s narrow 1-0 victory over Norwich City on Saturday afternoon, with fans voicing their discontent.

And it seems ‘A League of Their Own’ star Jack Whitehall shares such dissatisfaction, the comedian hilariously trolling Wenger in a recent interview on Sky Sports News.

In the below video, Whitehall compares the Arsenal manager to “a drunk guy on a night out that just won't go home”, his reference being that Wenger refuses to end his tenure as manager at the Emirates.

Arsenal fans will likely agree. The Gunners’ lack of Premier League silverware this season means it’s now 12 years since they last lifted the title.

Put simply, that isn’t good enough. For a club of Arsenal’s size and wealth, they should be comfortably challenging for the title, if not winning it.

Another important summer awaits them as a result, with big changes needed to ensure they don’t make the same mistakes next time around.

And one change could well be made is a new face upfront following a campaign which has seen Arsenal’s strikers struggle to consistently find the back of the net.

Olivier Giroud hasn’t scored in the league since January, Danny Welbeck has been hit-and-miss after returning from injury and Theo Walcott is as much a striker as he is a centre-back.

So perhaps unsurprisingly, the Gunners are plotting a summer bid for Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski should he decide on a move away from the Allianz Arena.

This is according to the Mirror, who claim Arsenal’s board will hand Wenger a huge £150 million kitty at the end of the season to bolster his underperforming squad.

A third of that could be spent to lure Lewandowski following yet another prolific season for the 27-year-old - he’s scored 40 goals in all competitions, 27 of which coming in 30 Bundesliga appearances.

Whether the striker will indeed part ways with Bayern remains to be seen, but players of Lewandowski’s calibre are needed to end Arsenal’s excruciating wait for the Premier League title.
