Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has claimed that manager Arsene Wenger will be at the club for "a long time".
The Frenchman had fuelled speculation about his future at the Emirates Stadium last month by suggesting that he would consider his position at the end of the season.
"Arsene's only 62 and in great shape and I don't sense any weakening of his desire," Gazidis told the Sunday Telegraph.
"Nobody knows what the future holds but it is entirely possible that he will be with the club for a long time to come.
"I know what he meant by talking about the short term. He wants to be successful and that's important. At the same time he cares about this club so deeply, he's thinking about things that will only impact the club after he has gone."
The Gunners are currently fourth in the Premier League table.
