The future of Arsene Wenger’s trusted transfer negotiator at Arsenal, Dick Law, is in doubt, the Daily Telegraph say.
The newspaper reports that sources have indicated that Law might not be at the club next season, despite Arsenal denying that the American could go.
Law originally scouted for Arsenal in South America and played a key role in the Gunners signing Gilberto Silva and Carlos Vela.
More recently he has worked in England, operating alongside Wenger and Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis.
Speculation over Wenger’s position has increased after he suggested on Friday that he could make a decision on his future next month and that he plans to stay in management if he leaves Arsenal.
The Daily Mirror reckon his comments have put Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris St-Germain “on alert”.
Wenger’s contract expires at the end of the season and many fans have been calling for him to go, particularly in light of this week’s 5-1 thrashing by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
The Mirror also report that Wenger’s brother Guy has admitted that the under-fire manager’s situation is “not good” as pressure mounts.
Guy Wenger told the newspaper: “I feel sympathy for Arsene. The situation is not good for him. But it is his problem, not mine.”
