Wenger ready to commit to Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has held preliminary contract talks with Arsenal and says he is ready to commit his long-term future to the club.
His current deal expires at the end of the forthcoming season and earlier in the summer, he was linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The French club later appointed Laurent Blanc as manager, but some believe that this is only a temporary solution until Wenger becomes available.

However, speaking to several national newspapers, Wenger played down the PSG link, saying he was fully committed to the north Londoners.

He said: "I am committed to staying longer at this club. I've already had a chat with Ivan. It went very well, not a problem.

"The link with PSG is there because I'm French and I know the owners. But if that was the case then I would be there already. I'm not at PSG because my heart is with Arsenal."

Arsenal have not won a trophy under Wenger for eight years, but the manager believes the tide will soon turn as they are now able and willing to compete with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City in the transfer market.

The Gunners have been linked with Wayne Rooney, Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain in recent weeks, and Wenger admits all three are "realistic targets quality-wise", before continuing:

"We have better financial resources than the years before and it is resources we have created ourselves. That is massively important to us. For years we were out of the race for the top-level transfers but we are coming back now because we are in a better financial situation and also because of Financial Fair Play."

Arsenal are 11.00 to win the FA Cup in the 2013-14 season, 10.00 to win the League Cup and 11.00 to win the Premier League for the first time since 2004. United are 3.25 to win the league, while City are 3.25.
