Arsene Wenger Set to Be Offered New Contract by Title-Chasing Arsenal
Arsene Wenger’s fantastic start to the season hasn’t gone unnoticed by those at the Emirates.
Having led Arsenal to the Premier League summit and made a winning start to life in the Champions League, club officials are readying a contract that would see Wenger surpass 20 years as Gunners boss and receive a whopping £500,000 wage increase per year.
Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail has the details:
Arsenal are preparing formal discussions with Arsene Wenger over a new three-year contract worth £8 million-per-season.
As revealed by Sportsmail during the summer, informal discussions over fresh terms have already taken place between Wenger and chief executive Ivan Gazidis.
Wenger’s rejuvenated Arsenal side have settled into a rhythm of free-flowing, attacking football since losing to Aston Villa on the Premier League’s opening day.
Although the Frenchman failed to land a new centre forward during the summer transfer window—something that should be rectified in January—their upturn in form is largely down to the £42.4 million deadline-day signing of Mesut Ozil.
The former Real Madrid star’s ability to slot seamlessly into the North London club’s style of play has been aided by a terrific run of form from individuals such as Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud.
Wenger has shown commendable loyalty to these players—who have come under fire for poor performances in recent seasons—and is reaping the rewards of his faith.
Arsenal’s quest for Premier League glory has been strengthened with five straight wins, including impressive results against local rivals Tottenham Hotspur and away at Swansea City. Champions League victories over Marseille and Napoli also highlight the credentials of a team that have the capability of ending their eight-year run without a trophy.
Is Arsene Wenger the right man to lead Arsenal forward?
Should a new contract be offered within the next couple of weeks, Wenger’s situation will have quickly changed after a testing summer.
Back in August, James Orr of The Independent reported how the Arsenal Supporters Trust wanted negotiations to be put on hold after defeat to Villa.
With Paris Saint-Germain also eyeing up the in-demand Frenchman for a director’s role, per Ben Jefferson of the Express, Arsenal must work feverishly to tie up the 63-year-old’s long-term future.
