Wenger, who will leave Arsenal at the end of this campaign after a reign of nearly 22 years, said he was hopeful Jack Wilshere would sign a new deal with the midfielder's contract set to expire next month.

"Overall I would say I want to finish with two wins and that's why I will go to Leicester tomorrow giving absolutely everything to win the game". My brain demands work and is active. The former Monaco and Arsenal boss has revealed that he isn't fully retiring from football but will continue on in the game he loves, potentially at another top club.

The 68-year-old has called on the club to appoint his successor sooner rather than later.

"I think the earlier, the better", Wenger said when asked if an appointment should be made ahead of the World Cup. "What will I do, I don't know yet".

"I am not involved anymore in contract negotiations but, of course, I'm still in touch with Jack and if he wants my advice I will give it to him". I am determined to fight, not only for me but also for my family, my friends and all the people who support me. "It needs two or three additions and this team will compete for the championship next year".
