Arsene Wenger is expected to put pen to paper on a new two-year contract at Arsenal, according to

The 63-year-old, who joined the Gunners from Japanese side Nagoya Grampus Eight in 1996, could sign the new deal imminently following an encouraging start to the 2013/14 campaign.

Wenger's men currently sit top of the Premier League table after picking up 16 points from their opening seven matches - and are beginning to look like genuine title contenders.

Arsenal have not won a trophy since 2005, though, and Wenger has found himself under intense pressure on several occasions during the past few seasons.

The Frenchman has also been linked with a move to French champions Paris Saint-German next summer, when his current contract expires.

However, it now seems certain that Wenger will agree to stay at the Emirates Stadium for another two years.

It's reported that Wenger currently earns £7.5m per year - and that figure could increase with this new deal.
