Arsenal Offer Jack Wilshere New Contract - On Lower Wages

Arsenal Offer Jack Wilshere New Contract - On Lower Wages

The 26-year-old has emerged as one of Arsenal's only positives in an otherwise disappointing season for the north London side.

JACK WILSHERE must pass a full medical AND take a 20 per cent pay cut to stay at Arsenal.

Arsenal would look to give Wilshere a contract of around £90,000-a-week, but as mentioned earlier, incentives would be tied in to the deal, based on appearances etc.

Arsene Wenger has confirmed he wants Jack Wilshere to sign a new contract with Arsenal.

The England global started the season as a a back-up player utilised in the Europa League and the League Cup in the current campaign. He's impressed Arsenal and England fans alike, and Gareth Southgate will be hard-pressed to find a reason to exclude the Gunners man from his Three Lions squad for this summer's FIFA World Cup if his form continues, and, as ever with Wilshere, he remains injury free.

Wilshere was described by Gary Neville on Monday night as "best English midfield player by a street".

Having returned to the starting XI in recent months, Wilshere has shown glimpses of his former potential and would have expected a contract offer, with his current deal at the Emirates set to expire in the summer.

"He takes the ball on the half-turn and he's the only English central midfield player [like that]".

A source at Arsenal revealed: "The club want Jack to stay but have to make sure he is over the problems he has suffered over the past few years".

Arsenal sit sixth in the Prem table, some 12 points off fourth-placed Chelsea.
