Arsenal are reportedly ready to step up their efforts to tie down Arsene Wenger to a long-term contract in the next few weeks, asking the Frenchman to continue their quest for Premier League supremacy for another three seasons.

Wenger is in the final year of his current deal at the Emirates, but has insisted that there is plenty of time left to sort out his long-term future before the end of the campaign if he can keep driving the club forward.

With qualification for the Champions League knockout stages safely secured Wenger will be formally offered a three-year extension worth £8m per season imminently, according to The Mirror.

The 64-year-old has laid the foundations for a new period of success at the Emirates with the shock £42.4m capture of Mesut Ozil last summer, but Arsenal bosses are thought to be desperate for Wenger to stay and see the job through.

Eight years without a trophy scarcely tells the story of Wenger's incredible longevity in North London, with his reign starting in 1996 and including three Premier League titles and four FA Cups.

Ozil's arrival has helped Arsenal produce a positive change in fortunes this season, currently sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League table with a five-point lead over closest rivals Liverpool and Chelsea.
