Emirates Stadium boss to pen new two year deal.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has reportedly agreed ‘in principle’ to extend his current contract to beyond the end of the current campaign according to the Daily Telegraph.
The 64 year old Frenchman had been linked with a move to sign a three year extension, with his current deal set to expire this summer, but it now appears a two year deal.
Wenger accepts that his future at the North London club is a ‘short term’ one and after the club’s 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Chelsea many had speculated that the long serving boss was ready to walk away from the Emirates Stadium side.
Arsene Wenger has been actively working with contract negotiator Dick Law and chief executive Ivan Gazidis on the Arsenal’s summer transfer strategy and will look to appoint a new academy director.
Arsenal face Swansea City tonight and Wenger has demanded a positive reaction from his side as they look to keep their slim Premier League title hopes alive.
