Wenger ready to sign new deal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed he has had talks with the club’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis about signing a new contract with the club.

The Frenchman has come under increasing pressure from the fans in recent times as the club has failed to win a trophy in the past 8 years and the club have been accused of lacking ambition in the transfer market too, but the club have stood by Wenger for many years and seem keen to get him to sign a new deal.

He has been linked with a move to PSG next summer when his current deal expires, but he said the following about his future in a press conference during the Gunners Asia Tour:

“I am committed to staying longer at this club. I’ve already had a chat with Ivan. It went very well, not a problem,” Wenger said.

“The link with PSG is there because I’m French and I know the owners. But if that was the case then I would be there already. I’m not at PSG because my heart is with Arsenal.”
