Their headline reads that Bellerin "cannot stand" it any longer at Arsenal, and would be looking to leave the club in the summer transfer window.

As for the AST, the organisation have not stated how many of its 2,500-ish members took the survey, but the percentage of fans wanting Wenger to forgo the final year of his deal has risen a full 10% from this time last season.

There have been questions about the financial stability of the Chinese-led consortium that purchased the club from Silvio Berlusconi for 740 million euros ($918mn) last April, spending more than 200 million euros on new players in the summer. "It is hard to say if it is his fault or our fault".

"It's not the easiest time for the club, but we are here to help, do our best, and put Arsenal on the level that it was before". The 20-year-old has bagged 14 goals in 33 appearances in all competitions, and has scored four times in his last four Serie A outings. "We lost a little bit of our quality but we need to stay united".

At the moment, Milan look more likely than Arsenal to go all the way but clearly that could all change based on Thursday's result-all the while Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund remain two of the more fancied teams for the tournament.

The right-back trained with the first-team on Wednesday and was expected to be part of the traveling party to Italy.

"Listen, we fight. We don't go into games with our heads down".

"It's always been the same here".

Former players have also hit out at the current team, and Emmanuel Petit told SFR Sport he felt some players had "given up".

He said, according to the BBC: "I'm not a great coach". Sometimes, I find certain types of their behaviour on the pitch a disgrace because it's repetitive.

Things could hardly have been worse for the Gunners when they found themselves two goals down in the first 30 minutes away at Brighton thanks to goals from Lewis Dunk and Glenn Murray.

"I want to grab the players by the collar, shake them up". They are one place worse off this season and may not qualify for Europe at all.

"I've never seen such pain in Arsene Wenger's face and what does he do with this squad?"
