Arsenal are ready to offer Arsene Wenger a new contract in the hopes of laying to rest fears that PSG will make a move for him next season, reports The
The Frenchman’s contract is due to expire in October, and PSG have long been admirers of the longest serving current Premier League manager.
They have appointed Laurent Blanc to the post of boss at Parc des Princes, but have only offered him a 12-month rolling contract – meaning the end of his deal falls at a time that Wenger could be out of contract.
However, The Mirror believes that new Arsenal chairman Sir Chips Keswick and the board plan on keeping Wenger for “another three years at least”, and have made the larger funding available to Wenger this summer in the hopes of proving their ambition and desire for him to stay.
They also hope to cite the attitude of Thomas Vermaelen, who recently vowed to stay at Arsenal and fight for his first team place amid fears that Wenger would deem him surplus to requirements. The 63-year-old is said to admire Vermaelen as both a man and as a player, and it is this form of loyalty that Arsenal hope will keep their long-serving manager at the helm for the forseeable future.
