Wenger close to new contract?

Girl you can tell everybody/Yeah you can tell everybody/Go ahead and tell everybody/I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man - Laurence Griffiths

According to Ivan Gazidis, yeah, he is.

As a part of the blowout announcement of Arsenal's new kit deal wit Puma, another announcement was made. Well, sort of. Ivan Gazidis let slip that, while it's not totally a done deal, it looks like Arsene Wenger will be staying with Arsenal after this year (which, of course, pretty much everyone assumed was the case anyway).

So does that mean there's an agreement and they just don't feel like announcing it yet? Are there still details to be hashed out? Are we going to announce Wenger's new deal at the same press conference where we unveil Julian Draxler and Bacary Sagna's new deal? Who knows, but it looks like it's safe to assume that the man who's built the foundations of the modern Arsenal will yet get to enjoy the fruits of his decade of labor.
