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.

Arsenal once again Arsenaled at West Brom on Sunday, as the Gunners drew 1-1 against the team second from bottom in the Premier League table.

The Gunners just did not turn up and produced a lacklustre display against a resilient Baggies team. There was not a huge gulf in quality in the clash, which is quite worrying for Arsenal fans.

However, fans of the north London club have had to cope with disappointing results against so-called inferior opposition for a good while now. While most Arsenal players underperformed, central midfielder Jack Wilshere produced another bright performance.

Alan McInally has claimed that Arsenal do not want Jack Wilshere. This is despite the English midfielder playing an integral role in the Arsenal team since his return, with their upturn in form seeing them climb up the Premier League table.

Arsenal were able to battle past Crystal Palace in their last game as they displayed the strengthening backbone they have. They were pegged back to 1-1 before they were forced to see out a nervy 3-2 scoreline. Despite the fact they had led 3-1, what was most important was the fact they won all three points in the end.
