Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed he has been offered a contract extension by the club.
Wenger has previously stated his desire to sign a new deal, with his current one expiring at the end of the season.
While the Frenchman, who has been in charge since 1996, would not be drawn on any timeframe for putting pen to paper officially, he confirmed that an offer has been made.
“I didn’t deny that (there has been an offer),” he said.
“I said many times I don’t think there is any need to come back on. I answered that question already. I said what I said when I was asked this question at the start of the season. Nothing has changed.
“When you are manager at the club you have to prepare for the long term always and act like you will stay forever. What is important now is our next game.”
Arsenal have enjoyed an impressive start to the season and top the Premier League, having lost just one game in the top flight.
“I said (at Thursday’s AGM) I want everyone to be happy by the end of May,” Wenger added.
“That is, of course, the target of any manager. I can’t imagine any manager would not want the fans to be unhappy at the end of the season.
“That’s what we work so hard for. You can call that what you want. We just want to win our next game.”
