Arsene Wenger has revealed he plans to secure Samir Nasri's future with a long-term deal at Arsenal.
The French midfielder is currently enjoying his best spell at the Emirates and is the club's leading scorer with 11 goals this term.
And Wenger is keen to ensure he continues to light up the Emirates with his impressive displays for some time yet.
"We will try for a new deal," Wenger said in reference to Nasri.
"I believe that for 90% of the players, their career depends on the club where they go.
"It looks to me he has made the right decision when he decided to join us, so it will be the right decision for him to stay with us."
Nasri's mesmeric form has made him an early front runner to be crowned Footballer of the Year, following in former Gunner Thierry Henry's footsteps.
His majestic brace against Fulham on Saturday took him into double figures for the campaign.
Indeed, Cesc Fabregas' injury has allowed the French international to become the fulcrum of the Gunners' attack - something he is clearly relishing.
Wenger, however, has stressed that the success of the team has to come before any desire for individual honours.
"We are in the middle of the season now and I will be happy for him if he becomes Player of the Year - but what is the most important for me is that the club wins," he added.
"I believe the priority is not to win individual awards - the most important thing is that the players focus on making sure their club wins.
"Samir Nasri is an intelligent player and understands he plays where he can help the team most. He has become more efficient and is maturing.
"Nasri is only 23-years-old and at that age you develop.
"When Thierry Henry came here he was 23 already and still developed a lot so that means there is a lot more to come from Nasri, Fabregas and all these players, so they are not players who are at the end of their improvement."
Arsenal will be hoping Nasri continues his imperious form as they face Partizan Belgrade in their final Group H game in the Champions League at the Emirates.
Fabregas is set to miss the game but Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott are set to start the match with Arsenal looking for a win to secure qualification to the last 16.
