Arsenal are hoping that Arsene Wenger will extend his 17 year stay at the club.
Arsenal are set to begin talks with boss Arsene Wenger about extending his contract at the Gunners according to Goal.com.
The Londoners announced that they will install Sir Chips Keswick as their new chairman following the resignation of Peter Hill-Wood, who stepped down yesterday due to health reasons.
Keswick’s first job as Gunners chairman appears to be to keep Arsene Wenger at the club and the Gunners have already held preliminary talks with the French manager.
The club will now step up their negotiations and are hoping Wenger will sign the contract extension this summer as his current contract expires in 2014.
Wenger has the support of the Arsenal board and the fans and although he has been strongly linked with a move to Paris St Germain, it is understood that the French man wants to stay in London for personal and professional reasons.
Wenger will reportedly have the biggest transfer budget in the clubs history to spend on new players this summer and the London club have been linked with many top names including Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney and Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain.
The club will be determined to end their trophy drought this season having not won any silverware since 2005.
