Jack Wilshere has said that he will decide on his future once he has had an honest conversation with Arsene Wenger as he moves into the final 6 months of his current contract.
Wilshere, like Ozil and Sanchez could leave next summer for free, with West Ham one possible destination for Wilshere, the team he supported as a boy before joining Arsenal when he was just 9.
With the World Cup in Russia next summer, Wilshere could be in line for selection if Gareth Southgate decides he has played enough for Arsenal but more playing time at another club could only improve his chance of making the plane.
Arsene Wenger said earlier in the season that they would decide on Jack’s future in December and this timing would suit Wilshere’s final push for Russia and given he has only played 25 minutes of Premier League football this term, a move looks likely for Super Jack.
When asked about his future, Jack said in the Daily Mail:
“I think we will have to talk about that. We have got a month until then and me and the boss will probably have a conversation before then and see what happens because obviously when January comes I have only got six months left on my contract. We will see what happens between now and then, I will talk to the boss. We have known each other for long enough and we have a good relationship where we can be honest with each other so I’m sure we will be and then we will go from there”.
“I’ve said before that I want to stay here and play. I’ve been at this club for years. I don’t have to say how much this club means to me, how good they have been to me, but at the same time as well, the boss has got to be honest with me and I’m sure he will…”
He continues to impress when called upon and has put in some decent shifts this season in the League Cup and Europa League and will probably be on the bench again tomorrow at Burnley as we look to build on last weekend’s excellent win over Sp*rs.
