The Arsenal boss will attend a board meeting after the FA Cup final, where his much-speculated future is set to be on the agenda.

Arséne Wenger's future at Arsenal - the subject of plenty of speculation among fan protests and boycotts - appears likely to be settled at a board meeting after the FA Cup final, although the veteran manager tried to remain typically evasive on the issue.

Wenger is out of contract at the end of this season and has persistently batted away enquiries over his future.

Wenger's top-four run in peril

Arsenal have won six of their past seven Premier League matches but will miss out on Champions League football unless they are able to better Liverpool's result against Middlesbrough when they host Everton on Sunday.

It would be the first time the Gunners have finished outside the top four under Wenger's tenure, which began in 1996, and fan protests against his reign have continued despite the recent upturn.

Wenger: "Final game? Of the season yes"

Asked at a pre-match news conference whether this weekend would mark his final game in charge at Emirates Stadium, he said: "Of the season, yes."

Pressed on whether it would be his last game ever in north London he replied: "I cannot tell you that.

"I think what is most important for us is to win the football game that we play on Sunday.

"After that, what happen to me is less important. I'm here to serve the club and the best way to do it is to win the next game."
