Arsene Wenger’s future is not with Arsenal, but the Frenchman is ‘convinced’ that Jack Wilshere will still be with the Gunners entering the 2018-19 campaign.
Wilshere is yet to agree terms on a new contract at the Emirates Stadium, and as it stands, he will be free to leave at the end of next month.
The 26-year-old’s future at the club has been a bit of a merry-go-round, and it would be fair to say that the Arsenal supporters are a bit fed-up with the situation.
Wilshere, who is valued at £16.2m by transfermarkt.co.uk, has not exactly been brilliant for the Gunners in recent months, but is certainly a different player to the one that struggled on loan at Bournemouth last season.
Wenger is not involved in the contract talks with Wilshere, but the current Arsenal manager believes that the midfielder will ultimately sign a fresh deal at the Emirates Stadium.
The club’s supporters have been reacting to Wenger’s quotes, and whilst there are plenty that want Wilshere to stay, it is not an opinion shared by all.
