Arsenal striker Thierry Henry claims he is not concerned about money as he prepares to begin talks over a new contract at Highbury.
The Frenchman recently tried to end speculation about his future by announcing he intends to stay with the Gunners but he is yet to discuss a new deal with the club.
The 28-year-old, who is out of contract at the end of next season, has dismissed suggestions he is hoping to secure a huge pay rise but says the club must be able to compete for trophies.
Henry told The Sun: 'This is not about the money. Cash has never been my priority.
'It is more a matter of football and now the club must show me they can match my sporting ambitions.
'I am willing to commit to Arsenal for the rest of my career but the team has to be competitive.
'We need to build and the ball is in the club's court. I need to know the club's ambition.'
