The Gunners boss, 63, still has another season left to run on his current deal, but has been linked with a summer switch to big-spending Paris St Germain.

Wenger, though, stressed his only focus was on securing Arsenal a top-four finish in the Premier League again and then planning to further strengthen the squad in the transfer window, with the best part of a £100 million warchest at his disposal.

Speaking at a media conference ahead of the trip to relegated QPR, Wenger said: "I answered that question already. I respect my contracts.

"I want to stay (on past 2014) if I do well and if I consider or the club considers that I do well, that is all.

"I want this club to do well, that is my basic feeling.

"We have gone through a period that was very sensitive, we are coming out of it now, in a much stronger position financially.

"I believe the club is in a very strong position for the future."
