Jack Wilshere fears he will have to quit Arsenal this summer.
The 26-year-old is desperate to stay, but is becoming increasingly worried that his boyhood club’s offer of a pay-as-you-play deal is a sign they do not share his commitment.
The Gunners have asked Wilshere to take a pay cut from his current £110,000-a-week to £90,000, and also sign up to an incentive-heavy deal linked to appearances and performance bonuses.
New contracts chief Huss Fahmy is gaining a reputation as a no-nonsense operator and is refusing to budge an inch in negotiations with the midfielder’s camp.
Wilshere has already received offers from Everton and Italian duo Juventus and AC Milan. It is believed Liverpool and Manchester City are watching developments, too.
Having to leave his beloved Arsenal this summer would be heartbreaking for a player who joined them at age nine, and there would be backlash from the fans over losing one of their own.
