Jack Wilshere Ready To Leave Arsenal As Latest Contract Negotiations Break Down
Jack Wilshere is reportedly set to leave Arsenal in the summer after the latest round of talks over a new contract broke down.
Jack Wilshere spent last season at Bournemouth on loan but has once again emerged as an important player for Arsene Wenger during the current campaign.
He has played 27 games in all competitions and was one of the few players able to come away from Sunday’s 3-0 Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City with any credit.
Reports claim Jack Wilshere’s representatives and Arsenal are currently ‘miles away’ in talks over an extension, with the player unwilling to put pen to paper on the deal on offer.
The 26-year-old has been at Arsenal for almost two decades and wants to sign a new deal but is currently unhappy with the fees involved.
Speaking about Wilshere’s future at the club this week, Wenger said: ‘I want Jack to sign very quickly and I am happy to find the pen for him.
‘Talks are progressing but the decision belongs to him and we have to respect that. Our desire has been clearly expressed and numbered and, after that, the player has to find satisfaction as well.
