Arsenal could decide against extending Unai Emery's contract at the end of the season should the Gunners fail to qualify for the Champions League.

The board were satisfied with Emery's performance during his first year in charge and feel that he was unlucky not to finish with a Champions League spot, be it via the Premier League or through the Europa League.

Having backed Emery in the summer, the club now expect Arsenal to finish in the top four and the Times claim the Spaniard could leave the club if they fail to do so.

'We said to Unai that we just missed out on qualifying for the Champions League last year, but this year, with a stronger squad, we expect you to do that,' said Sanllehi.

Missing out on the Champions League for a third consecutive season is likely to take Arsenal's losses over that period to around £100m and they can ill-afford to remain outside of Europe's elite competition.

More: Arsenal FC. Emery has been backed in the transfer market and in his decisions over the long-term look of the Gunners' squad. The Spaniard instructed the board to withdraw their contract offer to Aaron Ramsey last term and they've backed his decision to ostracise Mesut Ozil from the squad. The German has been left out of the last three matchday squads and the club will listen to offers for him in January.

Ozil is unlikely to return to the squad after the international break, when Arsenal face Sheffield United away.
