Arsene Wenger has hinted that he is close to signing a new contract and declared that he wants to stay at Arsenal 'forever', according to the Metro.
In stark contrast to the beginning of the season, when numerous quarters of the Arsenal faithful were calling for Wenger's head, Le Prof has been the subject of much speculation concerning the signing of a new long-term deal which will tie him to the club for future seasons.
Having been publicly backed by owner Stan Kroenke, Wenger now sits in a healthy position and has expressed his intent to remain at the Gunner for as long as possible.
Despite reports linking him with the PSG hot-seat, the long-serving Arsenal boss has stated that he wants to be immortal so that he can remain at the club forever.
"I’d like to be here forever and to be immortal," he said.
"I don’t think we will need many talks to extend the contract."
It is believed that the contract Arsenal will offer Wenger is an initial two-year deal, but with an option to extend it beyond that if both parties desire to do so.
Negotiations are ongoing and are expected to be completed within the next few weeks.
