‘I don’t think he needs convincing,’ Wenger said. ‘He wants to stay here. If you have a good bank, call me,’ the Frenchman then joked.

Despite joking about negotiations, Wenger kept his cards close to his chest when asked if the club are close to agreeing a deal: ‘We keep that discreet. At due time we will come out with that,’ he said.

‘Am I confident he will sign? It’s not my main worry now. We want to keep our best players, of course. The more I say that, the more he is in a stronger position,’ Wenger added.

‘It’s not just money. Arsenal can win titles, of course. But that’s what we have to show.

‘We are in a league where Man City, Man United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea, everybody, fights and you cannot guarantee that to anybody.’
