Arsenal fans have once again been left guessing over whether Jack Wilshere has a future in north London or not.
Arsene Wenger says that Arsenal still haven’t made any profess in talks over Jack’s contract despite the midfielder making it very clear that he wants to stay.
“The progress is, in our jobs sometimes one day you think you’ve made progress and the next day you move back again, so as long as something is not signed you don’t like to talk too much about it,” said Wenger during his pre-Chelsea presser on Tuesday morning.
The 26-year-old has under six months left on his current deal with Arsenal and while the player seems keen to stay, the Gunners are definitely taking their time and you do have to question why.
At first, Wenger claimed the midfielder’s future would be sorted in December, then at the end of December and then at the beginning of January. However, here we are, two days into 2018 and nothing seems to be happening.
Jack took to Instagram over the weekend to express how he loves playing for ‘this club’, adding: ‘long may it continue’.

So this time about a year ago, i was a bournemouth player sitting in the stands at the Vitality watching AFCB v AFC wondering if i would ever play for @arsenal in the @premierleague ever again. After another set back, i never stopped dreaming and believing. If 2017 has taught me anything it would be NEVER GIVE UP!!! Love playing for this club and long may it continue. Looking forward to 2018 ❤⚽️❤
The England international has never tried to suggest that he wants to play anywhere but Arsenal. He’s been at the club since he was just nine and although he’s been dealt a bad hand when it comes to injuries, he’s given everything to return to full fitness.
He’s now made five Premier League starts this term.
Some games he’s sharper than others. For example, he ran the show against Crystal Palace and was then mostly anonymous against West Brom. However, he could be a useful squad player.
Whether he’s satisfied with that is another matter and potentially why contract talks haven’t already been wrapped up.
