Wenger is expected to hold a press conference later this evening.

Galatasaray are last in Champions League Group D going into Match Day 6 with just one point from their last five games.

The Lions cannot progress to the Last 16 or the Europa League and will finish the group in last place.

Galatasaray last met English opponents in last season’s competition, drawing 1-1 at home against Chelsea in the Last 16.

The Lions are undefeated in their last five home matches against English teams, winning three and drawing two.

Arsenal however, have never lost over 90 minutes to Turkish sides.
