Cameroon internationl defender Lauren believes he deserves a two-year contract offer from Arsenal.
The 27-year-old defender's contract runs out at the end of the season, but the club have chosen to offer him just a one-year deal.
Lauren told the Daily Mirror: "I've been with Arsenal for four years and I believe I've performed well enough to expect improvements in a new contract."
"I don't want preferential treatment. I just want the same as everybody else."
Lauren has linked with a transfer to Spanish giants Real Madrid, but the Arsenal defender hinted he would prefer to stay in England.
He said: "I have had offers from important Spanish clubs, but I am not using that to put pressure on Arsenal.
"If Wenger values me as much as he says he does, the club will have to make an effort.
"I want a quick solution in order to be able to play calmly for the key part of the season. I just want to concentrate on my work."
Arsenal usually only offer 12-month deals to players over 30, but boss Arsene Wenger insisted: "I don't think it shows a lack of respect."
"I understand where Lauren's coming from and I can understand his position.
"But I prefer it when negotiations are secret and you only come out when it is agreed or not. When things are made public, it is much more difficult."
