The low attendance figures at the Emirates Stadium this season could force Arsene Wenger out at Arsenal amid growing concern behind the scenes, according to the Daily Mail

Fans appear to have voted with their feet in recent weeks, with plenty of empty seats visible during home games as a protest towards Wenger remaining as manager, which is an issue set to be discussed with the Frenchman by the club's hierarchy at the end of the season. 

Arsenal's board are concerned that the decline in attendance figures could affect the club commercially, believing that the visual resentment between the fans and the manager could be detrimental to the club as a whole, with some board members believing Wenger must leave at the end of the season in order to resolve the issue.

The news comes off the back of what has been a dismal season for the club, which could end with the Gunners finishing seventh in the table, with Burnley only two points behind them and only five games left to play. 

Off the pace in terms of a Champions League place, salvation for Wenger and the club could come in the shape of the Europa League, with the winner handed a spot in Europe's top club competition for next season. 

The draw however wasn't kind to the North London club, as their semi final opponents are favourites for the competition Atletico Madrid, with the first leg at the Emirates in just over a weeks time, before the second leg at the Wanda Metropolitano the following week.
