The England midfielder, 26, will become a free agent at the end of the month when his contract expires and has been heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates in recent months.
Wilshere, who has been with the North London club for over a decade, took to Instagram late on Wednesday night and hinted that he is ready to ‘close the book’ on his Arsenal career:
‘There comes a time when you have to choose between turning the page and closing the book.’
Previous reports suggested that Unai Emery was keen to sign Wilshere up to a new deal, but the player himself wanted assurances of his role at the club and regular game time – something the midfielder didn’t see much of last season.
Both Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey are ahead of Wilshere in the pecking order and should the club sign Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria this summer, this could further dent the England international’s chances of getting what he wants.
