Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has assured the club’s fans that he expects to sign a new contract to remain in charge at the Emirates, despite reports linking him with a return to former club Monaco

, reports The Telegraph.

Frenchman Wenger had been linked with the Ligue 1 side, who were believed to be ready to make the 64-year-old the world’s best paid manager, with a £10m-per-year package reportedly being prepared, but he remains focused on staying with Arsenal.

During an interview with Eurosport, Wenger said: “(The contact at Arsenal) is not totally done but it should be sorted soon.”

The news has reportedly led Monaco to turn their attentions towards Benfica boss Jorge Jesus as an alternative, with incumbent Monaco boss Claudio Ranieri thought to be on the verge of the sack after three years in charge.

The club are understood to have already met with Jesus in Lisbon, and the appointment is expected to be announced within the next two weeks.

Wenger has been at Arsenal since 1996, and is the longest serving active Premier League manager. Arsenal have not won a trophy since their FA Cup triumph in 2005, but could end that hoodoo when they face Hull in the final of that same competition on 17 May.

Arsenal’s Premier League season finishes on Sunday when the Gunners travel to Norwich having already qualified for next season’s Champions League competition.
