The Gunners supremo claims he has been delighted by Seaman's form this term and insists there will be a contract on the table for the veteran goalkeeper when he calls time on his playing career.
"I have offered him a contract as a goalkeeping coach when he retires as a player," Wenger confirmed to Arsenal's official website.
"That could be next season or the season afterwards. We'll make a decision at the end of this campaign.
"It depends on how he does and also how well Stuart Taylor and Guillaume Warmuz do.
"Also there is Graham Stack, who is having an outstanding season on loan at Beveren."
The Frenchman is also hopeful that the 39-year-old will be available for his side's crucial midweek Champions League tie against Ajax, and says Seaman's form this year has answered the critics who were gunning for him earlier in the campaign.
He added: "David has had a great season for us.
"He began this season under a lot of pressure from the media.
"He has kept them all quiet and that shows you how well he has done because they were ready to slaughter him.
"But when his back is against the wall, he puts in that extra effort. He sees that this team can win things and that motivates him."
