Arsenal chief Ivan Gazidis is adamant they are on the right road for long-term success.

Gazidis maintains the often-criticised shrewd financial management of the Gunners will soon show rewards on the pitch rather than just the balance sheet.

"We are at the stage where some of the commercial deals that were tied into the construction of the stadium, and enabled us to take that first big step, will be renegotiated," he told BBC Sport.

"When that happens, we will take the second big step forward and that will be comparable in magnitude to moving to the stadium itself.

"At times it's been a challenging project, but we will have catapulted ourselves into the elite clubs on the European scale and that, for us, has been what the last 10 years has been about.

"Very clearly, it will push the club forward and put us into the top five clubs in the world in revenue terms, which will be a fantastic position to be in."
