However, Vergne believes that he is the perfect candidate to help 17-year-old Verstappen in the early stages of his Formula 1 career.
"There are a lot of benefits [to keeping me]," Vergne told reporters. "[Red Bull] see Max as a great talent and I think he can learn from me like Dani did this year.
"I think it's a win-win for everybody.
"To be fair everything is pretty open for next year and I cannot say really what is going on, but all I can say is I wish to continue with this team and we will see what happens in the next few days and weeks."
Vergne has picked up 21 points for Toro Rosso this season.
