Arsenal are looking to extend the contract of Spanish star Jose Antonio Reyes.Jose Antonio Reyes could be ready to extend his contract with Arsenal after his agent revealed that the club are looking to open talks about a new deal.
The talented Spaniard's future has been the subject of constant speculation this season as he has been continually linked with a move to Real Madrid.
Reyes was even caught out in a hoax phone call admitting that he would like to move to the Bernabeu, although Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has always reiterated his resolve to keep hold of the forward.
Since his multi-million pound move from Sevilla in January 2004 the 21-year-old has only sporadically shown glimpses of his undoubted talent, although grew in stature towards the end of last season as the North London side claimed the FA Cup from arch rivals Manchester United.
Now Reyes's agent Rodriguez de Moya has revealed that Arsenal are keen to tie him down to a longer deal, whilst the player himself is happy to continue after finally settling in The Premiership.
"They want him to sign for more years," said de Moya.
"We have not responded because he is still away on holiday but it is good news.
"It shows their resolve to keep him.
"He is very happy and now he is even more keen to do well with them after winning the FA Cup."
