Arsenal are ready to offer Jack Wilshere a new deal, according to the Telegraph.
The midfielder missed majority of this season due to an injury he sustained in the club’s preseason last summer and despite his lack of involvement in the team this campaign, he is set to be rewarded with an improved contract.
The midfielder has two years left in his current deal at the club and is also attracting interest from Manchester City but the Gunners are set to keep him out of the Etihad outfit reach with the new deal.
Wilshere is highly rated by the club and it’s fans and is even regarded as the club’s poster boy, he has built a solid reputation for himself since breaking into the first team from the academy at age 16. Despite his progress being stuttered by injuries, Wenger believes the England international can fulfill his potential at the club. Wenger is ready to offer the player an improved contract worth £110,000 a week as the French man aims to keep a certain amount of British players in the squad to meet the Premier League’s homegrown quota.
Arsenal are also looking to bring in some young British talents into the squad this summer with the likes of Kieran Tierney, Bob Holding and Ryan Sessegnon being linked with the club.
Wilshere has been an important part of the Gunners squad since making his first team debut in 2008, he has over 100 league appearances for the club in that period and he is expected to play a major role for the Gunners next term should he stay fit.
