Jack Wilshere opens up about his Arsenal future
Jack Wilshere discusses his future at Arsenal as he considers signing a new contract with the Gunners
Jack Wilshere has insisted that he is “sure” he will end up signing a new contract at Arsenal before the end of the season.
The England midfielder has been in fine form for the Gunners this term after having broken into the first team in recent weeks.
The 25-year-old made his third Premier League start of the season on Thursday night as he helped the Gunners to notch up a 3-2 win over Crystal Palace.
Wilshere’s current Arsenal contract is due to expire at the end of the season and there has not yet been any official confirmation of talks between the two parties.
Arsene Wenger recently revealed that he is planning to open talks with Wilshere about a new deal in the coming weeks.
And Wilshere seemed to indicate that he is ready to commit his future to Arsenal when quizzed about his situation after the Gunners’ win over Crystal Palace on Thursday.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Wilshere said: “I spoke to the boss and he says he’s going to speak to me, so we’ll see when he speaks to me and I’m sure it will be done.”
Wilshere will be hoping to feature for Arsenal when the Gunners return to Premier League action on Sunday with a trip to West Bromwich Albion.
The north London side are currently sixth in the Premier League table as they bid to climb back into the top four.
