The future of Arsene Wenger remains uncertain with the Frenchman's current Arsenal contract due to expire at the end of the season.

The Gunners expect Wenger to sign a new deal, but the long-time Arsenal manager is waiting to see how the end of the current season plays out before committing his future.

Arsenal have been in contention for the Premier League title throughout the season, but the 6-0 capitulation at Chelsea last weekend has left those hopes of a first title in 10 years hanging by a thread.

It is the FA Cup where most hope of a first trophy since they won the same competition in 2005 resides.

They Gunners meet Championship side Wigan in the semi-finals before a final against Sheffield United or Hull City if they make it through. Failure to win the trophy will be a huge blow to the club and its manager and could make the signing of a new deal less likely.

But if Wenger were to depart - who would be among the contenders to replace him? We take a look...
