Emmanuel Adebayor is expected to miss Arsenal’s final match of the season against Stoke City on Sunday, meaning he may have played his last game for the club.
The Togo forward, who is suffering from a groin injury, was booed by some supporters in the last home game while his agent Stephane Courbis this week said that he does not know what the future holds for the 25-year-old. Chelsea, AC Milan and Inter Milan are all monitoring developments.
Samir Nasri is also unavailable on Sunday due to tendonitis, while Vito Mannone could make a debut in goal after it emerged Lukasz Fabianski has a knee problem.
With Wenger having been targeted by Real Madrid, Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has indicated a desire to keep the Frenchman well beyond his current contract until 2011.
“We’ve consistently said we would like him to remain involved with the club as long as he has the drive and the ambition to want to do that,” said Gazidis. “He is clearly staying. He has the full support, unequivocal support of our board. It does not surprise me that clubs like Real Madrid would be interested. He would be the most in-demand manager internationally in the game.”
