"I am so happy to have extended my contract with Arsenal and I'm looking forward to having many more successful years with the club," said Reyes.
"I am working hard in pre-season training at the moment and I am getting ready for next season, when I will do my best to help the club challenge for all the available trophies."
Left back Clichy, who joined in 2003 from Cannes, has agreed fresh terms on a five-year contract.
"I'm delighted to have signed a new contract and to have put my future with Arsenal," said Clichy.
"I really wanted to sign a new contract and I hope it will help me to further improve.
"I hope too that we will win trophies next season and that I will have the opportunity to prove to the club and the fans that they were right to give me a new contract."
