Arsene Wenger won't discuss his future with Arsenal until the group stages of the Champions League have finished, reports the Daily Mail.
The Frenchman's current deal at the Emirates expires as early as next summer and the club are keen to get him tied down to an extension.
But Wenger has so far refused to enter contract negotiations as he does not want it to distract from Arsenal's difficult run of games.
The Gunners' Champions League qualification hangs in the balance with a tough away tie to Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday followed by a trip to Old Trafford to face rivals Manchester United in a Premier League clash.
Losing to Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday could see them drop to third place in the table with a home tie against Marseille and a trip to Napoli wrapping up their Champions League fixtures.
Although favourites for the Marseille games, defeats away to the Bundesliga and Serie A giants will condemn Arsenal to their first group stage exit for 14 years.
And it is after the crucial Champions League games that Wenger is likely to consider entering negotiations with the club's executives.
Despite the days counting down on his current deal, chief executive Ivan Gazidis and owner Stan Kroenke remain confident that the Arsenal boss will agree to extend his £7.5m-a-year deal.
Arsenal fans will no doubt be happy to see Wenger remain at the club for the forseeable future, after guiding them to first place in the Premier League with a five point gap between second placed Chelsea.
