The Daily Mail website was running a story about Sampdoria bidding £9million to sign Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere this summer. However, the Italian club are worried they may not be able to meet the Gunners financial demands.

The midfielder has just 12 months left on his contract in north London. It would not be a major surprise if he leaves the club.

The Gunners have been worried about the German playmaker leaving the club in the summer, as his current contract of £140,000 per-week is set to expire in just over a year’s time.

However, it is being reported that Arsenal are now concerned about increasing his wages, as his performances have been poor of late.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is not willing to budge on his demands of £250,000 per week for a new contract. It has been well publicised that the two parties have been in talks over a new deal.

Sanchez’s current contract runs out in the summer of 2018, just like playmaker Mesut Ozil’s, so the club from north London are understandably keen to tie the pair to new deals.
