The major duty for Arsene Wenger now is to ensure that he is able to retain majority of his star players for the forseeable future.
According to a report by the Sun, Arsenal are set to offer Jack Wilshere a new bumper deal before the end of this month.
Despite some papers’ willingness to shoehorn him out the door at Arsenal, it was always more likely that a good season at Bournemouth would result in an extended deal at the Emirates than anything else…
Even if you feel that Jack’s future lies elsewhere, a new deal makes sense as Arsenal will want to protect their investment.
Given the age of Santi Cazorla and his current contract situation, Wilshere seem to be the player that would fit perfectly into his role. There is every possibility that the Spaniard could be on his way this summer.
Jack’s current contract runs out next summer and Arsene Wenger has already spoken about how he can see Jack managing Arsenal one day. The problem has never been Jack’s affection for the club, either. He knows he’s good enough to play at the top level on a regular basis as long as he’s fit, all he will want is the guarantee that he will get that chance.
