Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is reportedly set to be offered the chance of signing a new four-year contract with Arsenal.
Wislhere’s talent has never been questioned, but his career has been shortened by injuries which have held him back and led to his most recent problems after spending last season on loan at AFC Bournemouth in a bid to prove his fitness and form.
With his current contract set to expire in the summer and with no suggestion that a renewal is close to being signed, it has led to serious question marks and concerns being raised over his future at the Emirates.
However, according to The Mirror, it’s suggested that Wilshere could be offered a new four-year deal by Arsenal, with an agreement set to be reached and announced by the turn of the year.
The England international has impressed in his last two performances in the League Cup and Europa League, especially against BATE Borisov in the latter as he looked to be a level above the rest of his team-mates on the pitch at the time.
In turn, it’s added that not only has Wenger already held brief talks with that the 25-year-old could be offered a new contract, he has never lost faith in Wilshere’s ability and expects him to be important part of the senior squad moving forward.
Arsenal face the prospect of losing several key players next summer with their deals expiring, most notably Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil along with the likes of Wilshere.
Given how popular he remains with supporters having come through the youth system, signing Wilshere to a new long-term deal could be a real boost for all concerned and a good way to kick contract talks off to get key players to commit.
