    Arsene Wenger has been at Arsenal so long that Gunners fans feel as if they know him inside out.

    However, in truth, few fans will ever get to be face-to-face with the Arsenal manager. Every week, a select few journalists get the chance to pose questions to the erudite Frenchman. It's an opportunity that is unlikely to ever be afforded to most supporters.

    If Arsenal fans were able to ask Arsene Wenger anything, what questions would they most want to hear answered? We've selected five for this article, but be sure to add your own in the comments below.

Why Haven't You Signed Your New Contract?

    Wenger is still yet to sign his proposed new Arsenal contract.

    This is now the longest he has ever waited before renewing his deal. Chief executive Ivan Gazidis seems confident, telling Sky Sports that the Frenchman "will be extending," but as yet there's no confirmation.

    As long as Wenger doesn't sign, there will be a lingering fear that he could walk away from Arsenal at the end of the season. 

What Do You Really Think of Jose Mourinho?

    The Arsenal manager is a polite man. He is able to bite his tongue when other managers lash out.

    However, it would be fascinating to know what he really thinks of his adversary, Jose Mourinho. Earlier this season, Mourinho told the BBC that Wenger was a "specialist in failure." Off the record, Wenger would surely have equally stinging remarks to make about the Chelsea boss.

Why Did You Sign Park Chu-Young?

    It's perhaps the greatest mystery of Wenger's time at Arsenal: Why did he choose to sign Park Chu-Young?

    Since joining from Wenger's former club Monaco, the South Korean striker has made only a handful of appearances in an Arsenal shirt. He is currently out on loan at Watford.

    It would be fascinating to know if Wenger's motivation for bringing him to the club was influenced by the commercial impact of recruiting an Asian player. 

How Much Credit Is Due to Steve Bould?

    Arsenal's defence has dramatically improved in the past year or so. It would be interesting to know if that's down to Wenger or the influence of Steve Bould.

    Bould replaced Pat Rice as assistant manager in 2012. He was a fantastic defender in his playing days, and it seems only natural that experience should be transmitted through his coaching.

    Just how much of Arsenal's defensive improvement is due to Wenger and Bould respectively? 

Who Is the Striker You Really Want?

    Arsenal need a new centre-forward.

    Last summer, they missed out on a high-profile move for Liverpool star striker Luis Suarez. Wenger was expected to re-enter the market in January but opted to wait until the summer.

    The question remains: Who is the big striker Wenger has in his sights?
