The 25 year old has just seven months to run on his current deal, and while manager Arsene Wenger has stated that talks with the player will happen sometime in December, Wilshere has said he wants an honest answer from the Frenchman about whether he can break back into the starting eleven for Premier League games:
“We’ve got a month before the transfer window and me and the boss will have a conversation about my future before then. I don’t have to say how much this club means to me and how good they have been to me for the last ten years. But time is running out on my contract and the boss has got to be honest with me. I want to play in the Premier League so of course I am frustrated but it’s a difficult side to get into because the team is playing so well.”
The England international started the 1-0 defeat against Cologne last night. He has also played the full 90 minutes in three of the four other Europa League group games, as well as making starts in two rounds of the Carabao Cup.
