Posted on February 22, 2018 by Milos Markovic

Jack Wilshere’s future is once again one of the hottest talking points.

The rejuvenated midfielder is heading towards free agency as contract talks over a new deal continue to be dragged on. Wilshere spoke with Arsene Wenger over an extension back in December but an agreement has yet to be made.

Arsenal made an offer in January but Wilshere was not content with a proposed deal that reportedly included a cut to his basic wage but instead compensated on a difference with a number of performance-related bonuses.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal may be forced to sell forward Danny Welbeck and midfielder Aaron Ramsey in the summer. Both players’ contracts have just 18 months left to run.

The fact that German playmaker Mesut Ozil recently signed a deal worth £350,000 per week has led to fears that the new wage structure within the club may cause rifts within the squad.

Avoid mistakes of the past

Arsenal are keen to keep Ramsey. They have opened talks with the Welsh international over a new deal with the club. However, the midfielder is currently on £110,000 per week. He is likely to demand a big pay rise, especially after the recent change in the clubs wage structure.

Liverpool are reportedly prepared to match Jack Wilshere’s current contract with fellow Premier League side Arsenal as Jurgen Klopp’s Reds try to lure the English-midfielder away from London.

The Emirates Stadium was treated to a feast of attacking football on Saturday as Arsenal returned to winning ways with a superb performance. Everton were blown away in a 5-1 win for the Gunners as they displayed their immense attacking ability.

Aaron Ramsey was the hero as he struck a hat-trick, while Laurent Koscielny and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang completed the scoring on a day of outstanding home debuts with Henrikh Mkhitaryan shining and picking up a number of assists.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that Jack Wilshere is ‘an Arsenal man’ and hopes that the Premier League club can find an agreement that works for the player who has been integral to the London club this season.

Alexis Sanchez protracted transfer has dominated the back pages in the last week as everything else has seemed to fade into the background. Arsenal will apparently swap the Chilean for Henrikh Mkhitaryan which will give Arsene Wenger another attacking option which is vital as the side looked so bereft of ideas last weekend in their loss against Bournemouth.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal travel to the south coast to face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, as the Gunners attempt to keep pace with the league’s top-four.

Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last three Premier League games after one win and two draws in the English top-flight. However, last time out the Cherries drew 2-2 with Wigan in the FA Cup third round. They now face a trip to the DW Stadium for a replay.

Eddie Howe’s side are just a point above the relegation zone, despite that improvement in recent form. One of the home side’s main problems of late has been conceding goals, as they have conceded two or more goals in four of their last five top-flight outings.

Jack Wilshere has played down concern surrounding his injury after the player was forced to be substituted after hurting his ankle in Arsenal’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea in Wednesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final, with the midfielder expecting a swift return.

Arsenal were able to leave Stamford Bridge with their heads held high as they blunted Chelsea’s attack in the first-leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final. While the Blues did have the better chances in the game, they were worryingly poor in front of goal, with the match hardly living up to the pulsating 2-2 draw between the two sides in their last contest in the Premier League.

Chelsea and Arsenal played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

The home side had the first attempt on goal after just two minutes, as Alvaro Morata tried to poke an effort in at the near post. However, the Spanish striker could only find the side-netting.

The next attempt on goal did not come until the 20th minute when Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka dragged a long-range free-kick wide of goal. Two minutes later the visitors hit the Blues on the counter-attack, Jack Wilshere feeding the ball to Alexandre Lacazette, who fires wide of Chelsea’s near post.

Arsene Wenger has given an update on the futures of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere, with the Arsenal boss admitting that the Premier League side have received no offers for the star trio.

Arsenal ended 2017 with a paltry 1-1 draw with West Brom as the Gunners struggled to really get going in the game. Alexis Sanchez saw his free-kick deflected in off James McClean, before a very contentious penalty call gave Jay Rodriguez the chance to make it 1-1, which he did.
