Arsene Wenger plans to leave Arsenal at season end

Arsene Wenger is expected to leave Arsenal at the end of this season.

The Daily Star says the Frenchman's contract is up at the end of campaign, and he could walk away regardless of how the Gunners get on.

The north Londoners have earmarked Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe to be the successor to Wenger, who marks 20 years as boss a week tomorrow.

They were relieved England did not pick the talented young coach as Roy Hodgson's successor, instead giving the job to the far more experienced Sam Allardyce.

Official minutes of a meeting between Arsenal officials and the supporters' group in the boardroom at Highbury House near the Emirates Stadium have revealed they are ready for 66-year-old Wenger's departure.
