Arsene Wenger will face disgruntled Arsenal fans at today's annual general meeting.

The long-time Gunners boss will face questions on his future, and is expected to receive a number of questions on the club's transfer policy.

Stan Kroenke will be in attendance, and the American has already spoken of his desire to renew Wenger's contract.

The majority shareholder at the Emirates has earned the nickname 'Silent Stan' because of his reluctance to talk to Arsenal fans or indeed the media.

Though Wenger has insisted all contract-talk is premature, the club are confident of securing the Frenchman for a few more years, and fans want to question the potential deal.

Kroenke could also come under-fire in the near future as supporters groups push for a meeting with the US sports-mogul. 

With Arsenal top of the league in both domestic and European competition, the meeting is expected to be less explosive than recent years when only a rousing Wenger speech has stopped the AGM from completely boiling over.

The signing of Mesut Ozil went some way to appeasing Gooners, however, it is believed there will still be questions on the Gunners' transfer policy.

Arsenal left it until the last day of the window to wrap-up a major signing - paying £42.5million to Real Madrid for Ozil.

Prior to that deal, Arsenal hadn't spent a penny, snapping up Mathieu Flamini and Yaya Sonogo.

The club also missed out on summer targets Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez and fans are set to question why Wenger failed to add a proven striker to his ranks.
