The 20-year-old has established himself as one of the best young defenders in Europe with some stellar performances for The Gunners this term.
Senderos held down his place in the team after stepping in for the injured Sol Campbell earlier in the season and even kept the England international out of the starting line-up for the FA Cup final victory over Manchester United.
The former Servette starlet still has three years to run on his current deal, but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is ready to tie him down to a new long-term contract to ward off any potential suitors.
"Philippe has been magnificent for us and we will talk about a new contract when we report back in July," Wenger told the London Evening Standard.
"Hopefully, it will be sorted out before the start of the season."
