Wenger vows to quit if Arsenal don’t up the game

BIG MONEY: Kylian Mbappe

Arsene Wenger will walk the plank next season if Arsenal fail to challenge hard for the Premier League next season.

But to make sure that doesn’t happen, he will buy big-name stars.

Reports in England claim that the Frenchman, who has been in charge of the club for 21 years, is ready to quit if he can’t land a first title since 2004.

Wenger signed a new two-year £16million contract last week despite coming under huge pressure to quit after the club’s failure to secure a Champions League place.

He has been given his transfer targets, though, and a £165m war chest to get them in the off-season.

Furthermore, he was instructed not to stall on moves like in the past.

First up for Wenger is a reported £87m bid for Monaco striker Kylian M’Bappe, who Arsenal could have gotten for just £230 000 last season.

Wenger has also said that he could make a bid for wantaway Leicester wing Riyad Mahrez, who has a price tag of £45m.

Lyon goal-machine Alexandre Lacazette and Barcelona star Arda Turan are also on Arsenal’s radar.

Wenger is also confident that his superstars Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will sign extensions as they enter the final year of their contracts, despite missing out on the Champions League.

He explains: “I don’t think it will have a big impact because firstly they [Sanchez and Ozil] were part of not getting in there.

“We cannot weaken the club.”
