Arsene Wenger personally confirms he wants £90k-a-week CM at the Emirates next season

Arsene Wenger wants Jack Wilshere to put pen to paper on a contract extension deal for Arsenal, according to latest reports.

Wilshere has stalled over signing a new deal with Arsenal despite being in the final five months of his current contract. He is currently free to speak with Club outside England and he’s attracted heavily interest from Juventus and other top European Clubs.

The 26-year-old midfielder joined Arsenal academy as a 9-year-old in 2001 but he broke into the scene of professional football in the 2008/09 season when he was given his Premier League debut. He steadily improved in the club until series of injuries blighted his fledging career at that time.

He was sent on loan to Bournemouth last term where he brought his career back on track but again an injury scuppered his impressive season. Wilshere returned to Arsenal injured last season and despite being ruled out of the start of the season, he has since recovered and has been having a barnstorming season, arguably one of the best Arsenal midfielders whenever he plays now.

There is the general belief that Wilshere will pen a new deal at Arsenal and the deal is expected to see him earn less with performance-based add-ons all because of his injury antecedence.

“That decision doesn’t depend only on me,” Wenger said. “I want him to sign very quickly.

“We are still to make the decision and find the pen somewhere. I’m happy to give him one.”

Mesut Ozil penned a new deal for Arsenal and this is expected to spur Wilshere to sign a new deal.

    Jack is nearly as good as Ozil – and works harder. How can he be worth only a fraction of what Ozil is paid ? Because the Management (mainly Wenger) messed up the contract / transfer situation … Ozil had the club over a barrel. And because Jack is a loyal gooner they think they can take advantage. If I were Jack I would see this contract out and then talk again – as a potential free agent.
