Jack Wilshere is set to hand Arsenal a boost this week by signing a new contract, with Mikel Arteta set to take over as manager, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the England international has decided to commit his future to the north London club by penning a new three-year deal with the Gunners.

Wilshere’s future has been a big source of uncertainty this season due to the fact that his contract is set to expire this summer.

However, it seems that the England international is now ready to commit his future to the north London club by penning a new three-year deal, with the option to extend for a further year.

The same report says that Arsenal are also expected to appoint Arteta as the club’s new manager this week.

According to the story, Arsenal have been in talks with Manchester City assistant coach Arteta for the last few days and they are expected to confirm the Spaniard as Arsene Wenger’s successor.

Arsenal are the lookout for a new manager after Wenger stood down at the end of the season after 22 years in charge at the club.

The Gunners have not won the Premier League title since 2004.
