With Jack Wilshere in the final year of his contract, The Sun claim that Real Betis could be in line to sign him in January.
Arsene Wenger revealed the he will be offered a new deal later this year but it now looks like the La Liga side are on standby ahead of the impending window.
Wilshere has battled his way back from injury this season and his appearances have been limited to cup games, and a couple of brief substitute appearances, but personally it feels like Jack’s love affair with Arsenal is over. He’s definitely in line for a World Cup call up, but this would depend on him getting a good run of games, and staying injury free.
The paper claims that Betis enquired about Wilshere in the summer but with him being injured he decided against a move, instead choosing to remain at Arsenal to fight for his place.
“Jack’s situation will be decided in December. I want to give him the first six months of the season not to think about that and then see where we go from there. We need to clear things up before the transfer window arrives. At the moment Jack is a little bit in conflict with Mesut Ozil in the position he plays but ideally we want to keep both of them…”
It’s also thought that one of Ozil’s demands to stay centres around the number ten shirt, currently occupied by Super Jack, so we’ll see how that one pans out.
