Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has confirmed that the club are about to offer manager Arsene Wenger a new contract.

The 62-year-old Frenchman has already been with the Gunners for 16 years but now looks set to remain at the Emirates Stadium beyond the end of his current deal in 2014.

It had been rumoured that Wenger would leave the north London side when his current deal expires but he now seems certain to move towards two decades with the club. Wenger is the Gunners' most successful post-war manager although the club has not won a trophy for seven years.

Gazidis said: "It's not a sense of sentimentalism, not a reward for our services, it's a belief that we have an incredible manager who loves this club and is the best man to lead us forward.

"We're really confident about the direction that the club is heading. We're coming through strongly and we believe we're really well placed. We hope and believe that Arsene will be a part of that as we move forward.

"We get accused of a lack of ambition or complacency because, apparently, the board are only interested in the top four - that is absolute rubbish. We're trying to win. In fact, we try to do more than that, we try to win with style - we have a certain way of playing football that we take pride in. So again, it's a high ambition."
