Arsene Wenger is sitting pretty after back-to-back wins in the last few days and he can put all his worries behind him on Thursday. Now his attentions can move towards the summer and who he's going to sell to boost funds.
Three losses in about a week left Arsene Wenger facing the kind of protests only a group of fans who haven't won the Premier League in 14 years and are still better of than a huge percentage of football clubs in the Premier League, never mind Football League, could pull off.
However the Frenchman and his players have hit back in the last few days with a win over AC Milan in the San Siro and then showing Watford who really has the cojones in a win at home.
Even before the mini turnaround people have been expecting that Wenger would stay on past the summer, with one year left of his current deal. So now the question is what will the squad look like next season.
According to the Daily Mail it'll be one without Hector Bellerin. The newspaper report that the Spanish full-back will be available this summer for £50 million so the Gunners have funds for their signings.
New transfer boss at the Emirates Sven Mislintat is thought to want three priority signings this summer in goal, a holding central midfielder and a centre back and Bellerin would be seen as collateral damage to improve needier places on the pitch.
The Gunners would only listen to bids of £50 million, the going rate for full-backs after Manchester City's transfer business last summer.
Pep Guardiola's side were amongst the suitors interested in the 22 year-old Spaniard last summer but after splashing the cash on Kyle Walker last year probably wouldn't be in the running again.
The Premier League's all time Spanish XI:
Juventus and a return to Barcelona could be amongst the potential destinations for the full back should he agree to move on from north London, something that could be swayed by Arsenal's potential Champions League qualification.
The club would no doubt have to find a replacement for Bellerin if he did go, although Ainsley Maitland-Niles has played well in the position this season.
