French giants offer two-year deal to under-fire Arsenal man - report
By Danny Wright
Paris St. Germain have offered Arsene Wenger the chance to jump ship at Arsenal, according to a report.
The Sun reports that the French giants have offered Wenger a two-year contract to replace Unai Emery as manager in the summer.
Emery, like Wenger, has been under-fire at his club this season after they crashed out of the Champions League with a shocking 6-1 loss to Barcelona, losing 6-5 on aggregate.
The Parisians are also three points behind league leaders Monaco in Ligue 1 but they have a chance of picking up their first major silverware of the season when they face the principality in the Coupe de la Ligue final on April 1.
Calls for Wenger to leave the Emirates have grown louder and louder in recent weeks after a series of humiliations.

Football Insider Verdict
Wenger has never face such stern criticism in his time as Arsenal manager and PSG look as though they may have offered him a chance of salvation. Many people would have thought he would retire at the Emirates and he could be expected to stay there for at least another year yet, but the huge transfer budget and lack of serious competition in Ligue 1 could be tempting if Wenger decides he has had enough at the Emirates. Emery has barely had much of a chance with the French club and if Monaco weren’t having such a brilliant season his side would be easily top of the league. This shows that if things went wrong at Paris, their board won’t be as forgiving as the Arsenal one.
