Wenger, 64, insisted he is up for the fight.
He said: “I still have the energy and the excitement. I want to do well.
“I do not stay here because I have been here a long time but because I want to respond to the expectation of our fans.
“People want us to win the championship. People want us to win trophies and that is what I want to do.
“I had to stay here a long time knowing that we had little chance to win the Premier League but I think now we are in a position again where we can fight with other clubs to sign big players.”
