Arsenal playmaker poised to pen £100k-a-week contract renewal

London Evening Standard understands that Arsenal playmaker Jack Wilshere, who’s current contract at is set to expire in the summer, is allegedly poised to pen a renewed 3 year deal worth £100k-a-week, as the north-Londoners prepare to usher in a new era without Arsene Wenger’s command.

Wilshere’s future appeared to reside away from the Emirates, and as the intricate midfielder could still be available for free in the coming weeks, it’s thought that a great number of potential suitors including Paris Saint-Germain and Everton are indeed circling for his soon to be unemployed signature, if he opts to snub the Gunners’ bolstered offer, of course.

It’s believed that Arsenal initially wished to slash the 26-year-old’s standing salary, a reality which could have formally staggered negotiations, but now that his employers have evidently altered their stance, it’s seems increasingly likely that Wilshere will remain a Gunner for the foreseeable.

The midfield craftsman has beaten his injury demons and played a pivotal role in Arsene Wenger’s final campaign at the club helm, a resurgence which reacquainted the footballing world to his vibrant vision and tenacity on the field of play, a welcome sight to both ‘Gooners’ and England fans alike ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

But, despite proving his reliability and influence upon proceedings, Gareth Southgate elected to drop Wilshere from his tournament squad which will compete in Russia next month, a bewildering revelation which has shocked and baffled many avid Three Lions supporters.

Wilshere’s absence will surely be felt on the international stage, but if discussions regarding a gleaming new package go according to plan at Arsenal, the revived yet disregarded metronome will presumably strive to prove his doubters wrong in the famous red jersey to ultimately claw his way back into the national set-up, where he undeniably deserves to be.
