Arsene Wenger has reportedly agreed the terms of a new, two-year contract at Arsenal and is poised to sign it within the next 24 hours or so.

Citing sources inside the club, ESPN FC claim that the deal was tentatively agreed – possibly as early as November – with a formal announcement now due after Tuesday’s board meeting at the club.

Sources have told ESPN […] that Wenger wants to remain at the helm and that the broad outline of an extended contract was agreed, but not signed, six months ago.

John Cross in the Daily Mirror adds that the contract renewal will be made official on Wednesday this week.

Also on the agenda will be new £280,000-a-week contracts for Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

Wenger will attend today’s board meeting where his future, summer plans and a backroom reshuffle will be discussed.

There will be some degree of change after amicable talks between Wenger and chief executive Ivan Gazidis.

We’re close folks. All the bickering, the ungrateful whining, the sham protests – it’s almost over (for another 18 months, at least).

    Of course Mugabe was always going to sign a new deal. Who wouldn’t want to pick up at least £8,000,000 per year for doing a job where you have zero pressure, total control and where minimum standards are championed. Silent Stan pockets the cash and nothing ever changes. I’d feel sorry for the Arsenal fans and urge the 50% who want Wenger Out to boycott every game (vote with your wallet, show the board the empty seats), but we all know come the first game of the season they’ll all be there en masse cheering their team on – probably for more than it cost to do so last season – and then crying on youtube why “no one listens to us”.
