Arsenal are set to announce a new contract for manager Arsene Wenger on Wednesday, according to a report.

BBC Sport claim that the 67-year-old has agreed a new two-year deal with the Gunners after holding a meeting with owner Stan Kroenke.

The report details that the north London club are set to make an official announcement on Wednesday as they extend his 21-year reign.

The Frenchman divides opinion in the Arsenal fanbase and his expected decision to stay is set to cause major anger from a number of supporters.

Arsenal failed to qualify for the Champions League this season for the first ever time under Wenger and endured a difficult season in the Premier League.

They did manage to lift some silverware by winning the FA Cup final against Chelsea  and that appears to have been enough to keep Wenger in his role.

The Frenchman may need to invest heavily in the transfer window if his side are to compete at the top-end of the table as their main Premier League rivals are all expected to spend big in the summer.

Arsenal have not won the league title since the 2003/04 season and fans at the Emirates Stadium are growing increasingly frustrated.

In other Arsenal news, the club’s defender has revealed he nearly quit in January.
