Jack Wilshere’s future as an Arsenal player is still uncertain with the 25-year-old midfielder yet to receive a contract extension offer from the club.
The Daily Star claim time is running out for the Englishman.
Wilshere, who spent last season out on-loan with AFC Bournemouth, only has twelve months remaining on his existing deal at the Emirates. That means he’ll be allowed to negotiate terms with interested suitors from January 2018.
Injuries have had a significant impact on his development in recent years, and despite impressing for periods as Bournemouth’s cheif creator, his time on the South Coast ended prematurely with a broken foot in April.
Despite his injury woes, newly-promoted Huddersfield Town and West Ham United are reportedly interested, as his ability to create chances in the final third and from deep make him an interesting option to monitor.
He won’t break the bank this summer either given his current condition and stock having fallen considerably. Arsenal’s lack of need for Wilshere also compounds in a lower value with stiff competition for a starting place.
Wilshere would appreciate assurances over regular minutes, but if Wenger cannot guarantee him more playing time next season, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Englishman in search of a fresh start.
