Arsene Wenger is set to put pen to paper on a new Arsenal deal in the very near future, according to new reports from The Sun.
The publication relay the information today, stating that Wenger will pledge the next few years to the Emirates Stadium after leading the Gunners to the knockout rounds of the Champions League once again and putting them in a very healthy league position mid-way through this campaign.
According to the report at hand, Wenger has already drafted plans for the next few years. They include an overhaul of the scouting network at the club as the Frenchman bids to maximise the academy production line.
Despite the fact Wenger has 18 months to run on his current deal, a new contract would be a suitable reward for the 66-year-old given his feats at the club of late.
Arsenal moving forward
In the aftermath of the financially bleak years enforced by the self-funded stadium move, Wenger has purchased big-name players like Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Petr Cech.
Those individuals, combined with the natural flair and ability his squad already possessed, have given Arsenal the tools to fight for major silverware. If the Premier League title drought isn’t ended this year there will be plenty of eyebrows raised, that’s for sure.
As of yet there’s no official confirmation, nor is it speculated about the length of the contract that Wenger will be receiving, but The Sun say an announcement should be made by this summer.
