Jamie Redknapp believes that Arsene Wenger could end up leaving Arsenal this summer if the Gunners do not win the Premier League this season.

The Arsenal boss has found himself under increasing amounts of pressure in recent weeks following a disappointing run of form of just one win from their last seven outings in all competitions.

Arsenal were dumped out of the FA Cup at the hands of Watford at Emirates Stadium on Sunday as they suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat in front of their home fans.

The Gunners are currently gearing up for the return leg of their Champions League last-16 clash at Barcelona on Wednesday night, as they look to overturn a 2-0 first leg deficit at Camp Nou.

Redknapp feels that Wenger could be “moved upstairs” at The Emirates if Arsenal fail to win the Premier League title this season.

Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, Redknapp said: This is a golden chance to win the league and everybody knows it. The trouble is it’s the same old problems for Arsenal.

“There seems to be a naivety in recruiting in the right areas — their defence, defensive midfield and strike-force have long needed strengthening.

“The powerful Arsenal teams of old have gone and the newer generations have been too easy to play against.

“If they don’t win the league and the clamour grows for Wenger to leave, it could be that he moves upstairs to provide continuity and avoid a repeat of what happened with Sir Alex Ferguson at United. But with Arsenal still right in the title race, Wenger will hope his team can help put off any discussions about his future.”

Arsenal are currently eight points behind leaders Leicester.
