​Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he will decide whether to stay on as Arsenal boss after the club's FA Cup final against London rivals Chelsea on May 27.


Wenger spoke to the press ahead of his side's final Premier League fixture of the season against Everton, via ​Reuters UK, and stated that he would hold discussions with Arsenal's board on 27th May to finalise his future plans.


The Gunners manager has had a two-year contract extension waiting to be signed on the table since the turn of the year, but so far he has refused to provide any indication as to whether he will be extending his 21-year reign in North London.

Arsenal's fanbase has turned on the the Frenchman this season as yet another campaign of underachievement - so far - has come and gone, and Wenger revealed that he and the club's board will run a fine toothed comb over the 2016/17 season before deciding if he would stay or not.


He said: "I don't know (what will happen in the meeting). There are many aspects of a football club which has to be discussed at a board meeting. One of those is what happens with the manager, the players coming in, contract renewals.


"The most important thing is to win the football game. What happens to me after that is less important.

"Of course I will be there (at the meeting). At the moment we should focus on the short term and what is going on on Sunday and in the cup final."


Growing discontent among Arsenal supporters this season has led to widespread protests for Wenger to leave his post, with planes being chartered to carry "Wenger Out" banners the latest way for Gunners fans to express their displeasure over the club's progression under his guidance.


The club are on the cusp of missing out on Champions League qualification for the first time under Wenger, while defeat to the Blues in the capital in the FA Cup would ensure another trophyless season for the Gunners.

Ahead of the home clash with the Toffees, and the Wembley showdown with Chelsea, Wenger added that his thoughts - and those of his players - were firmly focussed on winning the two matches and anything happening after those games would have to wait until a later date.


He said: "We just want everybody to play 100 percent in last game as is the tradition in England.


"We have to do our job, we are professionals. We are on a good run and that’s all we can do."
