West Brom manager Tony Pulis believes Arsene Wenger will stay at the Emirates next season as Arsenal deny rumors that they have made any approaches for his successor.

The French manager who has given the Gunners some of their finest moments in their history in the last two decades has not been able to show any improvement in the last couple of seasons.

His side are now languishing in the 6th place in the points table and will need to find some consistency to stand of chance of qualification into the Champions League next season.

The loss at the Hawthorns recently will come as a big blow as the Emirates faithful have started to voice their dissent of the performances of their side recently.

This has seen rumors spread around the country that the club’s hierarchy have decided to move on and have that they have approached current Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel to offer him the job next season. However, an official spokesperson from the English club has squashed all such rumors and branded them ‘not true’.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, the Arsenal spokesperson revealed that there was no truth to stories that Arsenal have approached Tuchel over a possible offer at the Emirates.

Wenger recently revealed that he has already taken a decision on his future and West Brom boss Tony Pulis claimed that he knew what the Frenchman wants to do at the end of the season.

Speaking to the media at the weekend, Pulis claimed that Wenger told him that he is not ready to quit this summer.

“I’ll be surprised if he goes,” Pulis said, talking about Wenger’s contract that comes to an end at the end of the season.

“Because he told me,” he revealed when asked why he was so confident.

There is no definite statement from the club about the 67-year old’s future at the Emirates and it is best for all involved that it is left to deal with after the end of the season.
