PSG chiefs have left the door open to bringing Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger back to France next summer. New coach Laurent Blanc has only signed with PSG to the end of the season, when coincidentally Wenger's contract with Arsenal will be up.

The Mirror says if Wenger finally agrees to join his long-time admirers, Blanc will be axed - regardless of his achievements next season.

It is set to place the Gunners' French coach at the centre of a tug-of-war between the two clubs.

PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi who tried to sign Wenger two years ago and at the end of last season, is also general manager of al-Jazeera Sport, which employs Wenger as a pundit.
