Arsenal keeper Jens Lehmann will decide within the next few days whether to accept the club’s offer of a one-year contract extension.
The 37-year-old German’s contract expires at the end of the season but Arsenal have a policy of only offering one-year extensions to senior players.
“I think there will be a decision within the next few days or next week,” Lehmann told the club’s website.
“I would like to play here, I have always said I would like to stay but no decision has been made yet.”
The keeper is known to have wanted a two-year deal at the Emirates Stadium and has not ruled out a return to his homeland if he decides to reject Arsenal’s offer.
