Arsenal reportedly want manager Arsene Wenger to make a decision on his future by the end of this month, according to The Sun.
The Premier League side, who currently sit fourth in the top-flight standings, 13 points adrift of league leaders Chelsea, have offered the Frenchman a new two-year contract at the Emirates Stadium, although he has yet to inform the club of his decision.
The 67-year-old, who took over The Gunners back in September 1996, is set to meet the club’s hierarchy in three weeks’ time during the international break to iron out his future plans.
Wenger, who has won three Premier League titles, six FA Cups and six FA Community Shields during his illustrious career with Arsenal, insists he wants to continue managing next season, even if it is away from the Emirates.
He said, “No decision has been made and there is no need to come back on to that at the moment.
“I have been here for 20 years and had many opportunities to leave. I don’t need to convince anyone — my preference has always been Arsenal.
“The club is free to make the decision it wants — and I will respect that.”
