Arsenal are worried that England international midfielder Jack Wilshere will turn down a new deal and leave the North London club this summer, as per reports.
According to British media reports, the Gunners are concerned that midfield maestro will turn down their offer of a new deal and leave the side on a free move this summer transfer window.
The Guardian is claiming that the Arsenal man is not close to penning the Gunners’ latest offer of a fresh contract, which is alleged to be worth about £80,000-weekly wages.
The same article says Wilshere, 26, is presently more likely to leave the North London club than sign a new contract with his boyhood side.
It also suggests that West Ham, Everton and Juventus are the sides leading the transfer race for Jack Wilshere’s signature this summer transfer window if he does indeed end up departing the North London side on a free transfer at the conclusion of the campaign.
The report says that the player’s contract issue has been rumbling on ever since the month of September after he opted to stay and battle for his spot in the first team squad at the Emirates Stadium.
The Arsenal midfielder has been in decent form for the North London side and fought his route back into the team following a string of good displays in the UEFA Europa League for Arsene Wenger’s team.
The midfielder has found the net on two occasions and created three assists in 31 matches across all competitions for the Gunners so far this term.
