Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere looks set to leave the Emirates on permanent basis at the end of the current campaign, according to reports in England.
The 26-year-old will be out of contract in June, and he seems to have decided to leave the Gunners on a free transfer after spending last 17 years at the club.
Following some impressive performances this season, the England international was offered a new Arsenal contract, however, at reduced terms, and he is highly unlikely to accept the club’s £80,000-per-week proposal.
According to reports, Wilshere has told his friends that he does not expect Arsenal to improve their proposal, meaning that summer exit is likely.
The likes of Everton, Wolverhampton and Real Betis have already shown interest in the highly rated footballer, while few other top clubs are expected to come forward with official bids.
Jack Wilshere appears to be slowly getting his career back on track after a succession of serious injuries, and he has fared pretty well in 19 Premier League and 11 Europa League outings.
The talented footballer has also staked his claim for a place in England’s World Cup squad and it is believed that manager Gareth Southgate is seriously thinking about taking Wilshere to Russia.
