Give me two years, Wenger tells Arse­nal

New Straits Times - - Sport -

LON­DON: Arsene Wenger has in­formed Arse­nal that he in­tends to sign a new, two-year con­tract.

It is learnt the French­man told the club hi­er­ar­chy that he wants to ex­tend his stay at the Emi­rates Sta­dium dur­ing a meet­ing last week.

The north Lon­don club are adamant that Wenger’s fu­ture will be re­solved as a joint de­ci­sion.

But last week’s talks are a ma­jor step to­wards the French­man con­tin­u­ing his stay at the club.

Af­ter hav­ing doubts over his fu­ture, Wenger is now de­ter­mined to stay and trans­form the club’s for­tunes.

Vic­tory against Manch­ester City on Sun­day would help Wenger’s cause.

Me­sut Ozil is ex­pected to be fit for the clash af­ter re­cov­er­ing from the ham­string strain that kept him out of the de­feat against West Brom.

The mid­fielder played for Ger­many against Azer­bai­jan last Sun­day.

For­ward Alexis Sanchez could be open­ing the door to a move — per­haps to Chelsea — af­ter say­ing: “I am happy in Lon­don and I hope to fin­ish my con­tract at Arse­nal. I want to stay in a win­ning team and keep play­ing in the same city. I want to play in a team that have as­pi­ra­tions.

“I’m 28 years old, I still have a lot ahead of me.” Daily Mail
