Arsenal are reportedly ready to offer manager Arsene Wenger a new contract in an attempt to discourage Paris Saint-Germain from making a move for the Frenchman.

Arsenal are reportedly ready to offer manager Arsene Wenger a new contract in an attempt to stave off interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Ligue 1 winners are said to be close to the appointment of Laurent Blanc as coach at Parc des Princes, on a one-year deal.

However, the short contract has triggered speculation that the French side are looking to make a move for Wenger in the summer of 2014 and the Gunners are preparing a new deal for their manager, according to The Mirror.

Wenger has just 15 months left on his current deal, meaning that PSG would only have to part with a small fee if they were to lure him back to his homeland next summer.

An expensive name to get on the back of your shirt, but speculation claims that Kyriakos Papadopoulos is close to signing on at Anfield.
