Arsenal face a wealth of necessary activity at the end of the current season, following a campaign that has left the Gunners disappointed – despite reaching the Europa League semi-final.
Widespread changes are expected at the Emirates Stadium, with Per Mertesacker, Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere all rapidly approaching the end of their contracts, though Arsenal have made a fresh move to retain the services of the latter.
The Daily Mirror states Arsenal have made an improved offer to keep Wilshere in north London this summer, as they seek to fend off the rising interest in the England World Cup hopeful.
Wilshere has battled back to fitness this season and has proven to be a valuable asset, making 36 appearances in all competitions, attracting interest from the likes of Everton, West Ham and Wolves, but the initial offer from Arsenal was £20k less than his current pay package.
However, the Gunners have made a fresh approach with an offer in excess of £100k-a-week and Arsenal are confident he will agree to their terms, with it understood Wilshere is keen to remain at the club regardless of who Arsene Wenger’s successor is.
