Arsenal offer £110k contract to Premier League star

Jack Wilshere has finally agreed a new Arsenal contract, according to a report from Daily Star.

The injury-plagued Arsenal midfielder still hasn’t played a single minute of football this season after he suffered a stress fracture in his right foot.

He has only played 10 Premier League games since March 2014 but now it is revealed despite his injury setbacks, Arsene Wenger is handing the 24-year-old Englishman a new deal. He also not started more than 20 league matches in a season since 2010/11. 

Earlier this month Wenger gave a hint about the new contract, despite the midfielder is not expected to return to action until the end of February. 

The Arsenal manager said: “He has two years left and I want Jack to stay here. He is a special case because he is a special talent, he comes out of the club and he is an England international.”

Wenger even admitted that he was confident from the start, the midfielder will be fit enough to play in the European Championships this summer and the Frenchman also thinks Wilshere can guide England win the Euro this year.

Football Insider even claim that Wilshere will be offered a new deal, which will rise up his salary from £90,000 to £110,000-per-week. This means Arsenal will pay Wilshere around £31.5m across the next five-and-a-half years.

Actually talks have been going on since last summer regarding an extension and as the midfielder has agreed the new deal, so he will be with Arsenal until 2021.

Jack Wilshere was a high target for Manchester City last summer but his contract extension proves Arsenal don’t want to cash in on their highly rated academy graduate.

The new deal would lift Wilshere into the second bracket of earners at Emirates, behind best-paid pair Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez but alongside Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott, who last season penned a new four-year contract.

Wenger doesn’t want to give up on his star player who has already bagged 28 England caps.

“I am an optimist,” he answered when asked if he still rely on Wilshere following the number of injuries he has suffered.

Wilshere signed his current Arsenal contract three years ago and Arsenal boss is certainly not ready to give up on the England international.

Meanwhile, Ozil is expected to secure a £180,000-a-week contract that will lift his salary by £50,000-a-week and eventually make him the highest paid player in the history of Arsenal.
