Arsenal have reportedly decided to delay the unveiling of manager Arsene Wenger's lucrative new contract, according to The Sun.
Insiders at the Emirates are said to be increasingly worried by the Frenchman's refusal to commit to a £160,000 a week deal agreed in principle last year.
It is now feared that the 64-year old could walk out on the club in the summer when his current contract expires.
Wenger has repeatedly stated that he will only sign when he is convinced that the Gunners can challenge for major honours, and it would appear this season is his best-chance yet of ending an nine-year trophy drought.
He also knows comments such as when Jose Mourinho said Wenger was a "specialist in failure" are likely to continue if they don't pick up silverware this season.
Arsenal are currently just one point off the top of the Premier League and although it is unlikely they will progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League following their 2-0 first leg defeat against Bayern Munich, they are still in with a chance of winning the FA Cup.
The current Gunners boss will take charge of his 1,000th game for the club this month, either away at Chelsea on the 22nd March or the replay against Everton should next week's FA Cup quarter-final end in a draw.
