One of those attracting plenty of headlines is England international Jack Wilshere, who is rapidly approaching the end of his contract and looks increasingly likely to be available on a free transfer this summer.
Wilshere is not happy with the renewal offer currently put on the table by the Gunners, which demands a decreased wage and orientates around bonuses, whilst the midfielder believes he’s proved his worth with 31 appearances across all competitions this season.
“I can only reassure him that I want him to stay and we make him a proposal and after that we also have to accept that Jack is at an age where he will have offers from somewhere else. Personally, I have put my weight in for him to stay, I want him to stay and I think he’s an Arsenal man.”
“Gattuso said the other day that he has the technique of a Spanish player and the character of an English player and I think it’s well-judged. So that’s why you want him to stay at the club.”
Wilshere has endured a number of injury issues in recent seasons and was forced to pull out of the England squad ahead of the victory over Holland on Friday.
