Arsenal Board to meet and Wenger's contract will be on the agenda

Arsene Wenger's contract will be a talking point when the Arsenal board meet this week.

The Frenchman, has yet to put pen to paper on an extension to his current deal which expires at the end of the season.

The board have offered Wenger a two year deal, with a pay rise to £8million a year.

However Wenger has kept his options open and there is a feeling he may leave at the end of this season after 17 years as the Gunners' manager.

The 64-year-old has never left the signing of his contract this close to the end of the season during his entire tenure.

While the Arsenal Board are keen for Wenger to sign up for two more years, they will discuss what options they have should the Frenchman decide to step down.

Wenger has already hinted he's going to stay, telling reporters yesterday morning he was already planning for next season

He said:
"We are really focused and working very hard. Every day we spend time on that."
Earlier this month a survey carried out by the Black Scarf Movement supporters group revealed the majority of Gooners wanted Wenger to stay at the club, even if the Gunners finished outside the top four and failed to win the FA Cup.
